Criminal Defence Lawyers
Association of Manitoba
The Criminal Defence Lawyers Association of Manitoba (CDLAM) is an organization whose membership is made up exclusively of practicing Criminal Defence lawyers in Manitoba.
The CDLAM fights to uphold the integrity and independence of the criminal defence lawyer as a key stakeholder in our system of criminal justice. We work with other stakeholders, including the judiciary, the provincial and federal legislative and executive branches, and the public, to educate and inform about our important role in maintaining the Rule of Law.
We work to safeguard the legal rights enshrined in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and seek to protect the rights of legally-innocent persons accused of crime within the correctional and judicial systems.
