Using real-life hypotheticals, our panel of experts will address issues confronted by practitioners on a daily basis. Some of the subjects that will be covered are:
- Brady violations
- the criminal law versus the ethics rules;
- A defendant’s right to determine strategy, even when it is insane;
- Lawyers taping their clients and disclosing the tape in defense of a criminal or disciplinary allegation; and,
- Witness preparation
avoiding getting in bed with a perjurious witness.
