The Great Divides: Identifying Federal Criminal Defense Issues Currently Splitting The Circuits

Time: 10:00a - 11:00a

Ever identify a circuit split only to find out the split had been resolved? Or wished you had preserved a split long after your case had closed? We’ve all been there. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a training session designated to reviewing unresolved circuit splits so that you can effectively exploit these gaps in the law to benefit your client? We thought so, too.

In this webinar, we will review many of the federal criminal issues that are currently dividing the courts and discuss the preservation of these issues for potential appeal. We will identify circuit splits related to the issues you see most: searches and seizures, defendant statements, immigration, standards of review, the Sentencing Guidelines, and more.  After this webinar, you will be able to recognize many of the current criminal defense issues dividing the Courts of Appeals so that you can use (and preserve) these issues to vigorously defend your clients.
