WINNING STRATEGIES SEMINAR

The Winning Strategies Seminar brings together a dynamic group of attorneys and other legal professionals to speak on a wide variety of topics, all specifically designed to keep CJA practitioners abreast of the most recent and important developments in federal criminal defense.  Sessions include both large plenary lectures as well as smaller breakout sessions that meet the specific needs of the advanced practitioner and the less experienced attorney alike. The anticipated sessions will include such topics as a Supreme Court update, defending gun, drug, and immigration cases, challenging cell phone evidence, the practical implications of United States v. Johnson, implicit bias, sentencing issues, ethics, and more.  Also being presented, for those new to federal criminal defense practice, is the Fundamentals of Federal Criminal Defense Seminar, which is described below.  Participants must register for each program separately.
