Trial Skills Workshop / Crimes Decoded: Emerging Digital Litigation Technology Strategies (Virtual)

Crimes Decoded explores the intersection of digital technology and zealous advocacy in criminal cases. We aim to increase understanding and inspire CJA lawyers and Federal Public Defenders to think innovatively about how to litigate issues surrounding the digital technology that increasingly permeates their cases. We aim to build lawyers' confidence to use traditional advocacy skills with a new understanding of the potential challenges to the technology that law enforcement is using. With knowledge and skills, we can be successful in all phases of representation. 

TSW/CD is entirely live this year. Participants will meet in virtual rooms for all presentations, demonstrations and also for small group sessions where they will engage in concrete skills exercises.

The program consists of 11 live presentations, 5 workshop sessions, 2 demonstrations, a coffee talk where we invite participants to seek advice on any active cases from our experienced faculty, and an optional social gathering.

A limited number of spaces are available given the hands-on practice format of this workshop. Once you register, you will be placed on a waitlist. Applicants will be sent a link to submit supplemental information at the time of registration. This supplemental information form must be returned no later than September 22, 2021, to be considered for admission to the workshop.

Given the limited spaces, we ask that you commit to attending all live presentations and small group session. They meet Monday-Thursday, October 25-28, and Monday-Tuesday, November 1-2. Each of the six days of this workshop starts at 1:00 p.m. ET and ends by 5:00 p.m. at the latest.
