CAMP Survey

To Counsel:

In our continuing effort to provide the best service possible, it is important for us to periodically survey those who have participated in pre-argument conferences . Our records show that you recently participated in a pre-argument conference, and perhaps in follow-up discussions. We would appreciate it if you would take a few minutes to complete this questionnaire relating to your experience. The questionnaire is anonymous and will  be directed to the Director of Legal Affairs upon submission. The Court greatly appreciates your willingness to take the time to help us better serve you and your clients.
