Subcommittee Mission Statement

The Subcommittee on Business Court’s mission is to provide resources to governments, legislatures, judiciaries, Bar Associations, academics, the media, and individual judges and lawyers seeking information and assistance to support the development and improvement of specialized business, commercial, and complex litigation courts.  In addition to the fount of information available on our web page, there are numerous judges and lawyers who make themselves available to speak, formally and informally, on these subjects.  We work closely with the Judges Initiative Committee and the Section’s Business Court Representatives in bringing the practical expertise of business court judges and practitioners to the Section’s members, and other committees; and we closely monitor related developments in this area throughout the United States and internationally.
