Each year nearly 600,000 New Yorkers receive a summons to a local criminal court and yet the procedures and issues concerning these criminal cases may be little understood by our citizens. Panelists will examine the New York City summons practice, from issuance to adjudication, and educate the public about the policies, procedures and collateral consequences of these summonses.

RSVP: and write 'October 21 event' in the Subject line. NYCLA events are free and open to the public. For wheelchair access, a ramp is provided. Please call 212-267-6646 at least one day in advance to make arrangements.
