One of my biggest fears as a criminal law attorney is knowing my representation failed to prevent a wrongful conviction. Episode 296 (Duration 16:21)
The Bluhm Legal Clinic Center on Wrongful Convictions from the Northwestern Pritzker School of Law is conducting its Spring 2017 Symposium on Friday, March 10, 2017.
This program, entitled “Hot Topics in Criminal Justice: What You Need To Know”, is Free and provides approved CLE for Illinois attorneys.
Any attorney who emails me at [email protected] and lets me know that you’ve registered for this Symposium will receive an additional 1.75 hours of pre-approved CLE credit.
Just let me know that you’ve registered for the Symposium and I’ll send you your bonus ethics CLE mp3 file.
For a limited time after you register, I’ll offer you my “Better Call Saul” Ethics Hour course for FREE. This course takes a fun and relaxed approach as it examines the wacky scenarios the fictional character Saul Goodman finds himself in.
✓ The Cook County Public Defender AND The Cook County State’s Attorney will participate in the same discussion panel discussing implicit racial bias and decision making in the criminal justice. Tell me you don’t want to be in the room when that goes down?
✓ Dana Holland is a real life, wrongfully convicted exoneree. He’ll be in another panel discussion with the appellate prosecutor who litigated the appeal of the landmark decision People v. Lerma. This was the case that finally recognized eyewitness identification expert witnesses as litigate and appropriate evidence in certain cases.
✓ There’s something here for everyone. Firearm and toolmark identification expert believes this area of forensic science is not completely lost. He thinks it has a place in a courtroom. You just have to know exactly where that place is at.
✓ Be there when a real life big city homicide detective confesses to eliciting at least one false confession in his career. No cover up, denial or blaming the defendant ensued. Instead he dug deep to figure out why heck it happened. He’ll share his findings with you…if you are there.
✓ Come on dude, clear your calendar take the day off and come hang out with me. It’s FREE. We’ll be hanging out at the Northwestern School of Law in Chicago, and be learning from A-list presenters. I’ll let you take me out to lunch. I just figured, you know…since the symposium is free.
