FEDERAL DEFENDER INVESTIGATOR AND PARALEGAL SEMINAR
This two-and-a-half-day program will cover a wide range of criminal defense topics specifically targeted toward investigators and paralegals, who work at the federal level. A mix of plenary and concurrent breakout sessions will include presentations on areas such as sentencing mitigation, mental health, document management and analysis, online investigation, BOP issues, and offense-specific tips for building a defense in a variety of federal cases. Topics might be of interest to mitigation specialists and social workers as well. In addition, the seminar will include an interpreter track, with topics of interest to those who perform interpreter duties in their offices, as well as paralegals and investigators who work with interpreters.
An updated agenda has been posted featuring 3 NEW sessions on immigration, legal research and writing for paralegals, and reentry programs.
