Committee on Judicial Action

The function of the Committee on Judicial Action is to make recommendations to the Board of Trustees regarding appellate cases that the APA should participate as amicus or support DB/SA participation as amicus. When there are time constraints, requests from the Committee on Judicial Action may go directly to the Board of Trustees after consultation with the chair of the Council on Psychiatry and Law.

If an issue must be acted upon prior to the next meeting of the Board, the President may consider the issue through the Executive Committee.
