The National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers NACDL is meeting later today in Philadelphia Pennsylvania. The first two days of the organization's Spring Meeting is dedicated to Continuing Legal Education. Thursday offers two tracks a White Collar track and a Criminal Trial Practice Track. Friday offers a plenary session entitled "The Perfect Jury: Selecting Connection and Winning Them Over." If you are in or around Philadelphia today or tommorow and practice Criminal Law, this seminar meeting is for you. If you are toying with the idea of practicing in this area of practice, this one's for you too.
For those of you who can't make it to the seminar, I will be reporting on the highlights of the meetings and programs I attend. I will be moving back and forth between the two tracks on Thursday and will try to bring you the highlights of the sessions I view.
UPDATE: A few of the seminar offerings for latter today include: Introduction and updates to Wire Fraud, Federal Tax prosecution, Healthcare Fraud, and Securities law. There will also be a post-Booker federal sentencing update all in the White Collar Track. The Criminal Trial Track offerings include the 15 Minute Voir Dire;
Jury Instuctions That Support The Themes of Your Case and Selling a Not Guilty Verdict with Non-Verbal Communications.
Next week I will have a suprise for you... Keep watching this spot to see if you can guess the suprise before it is announced on Monday.
