NACDL's 2018 Annual Meeting & Seminar will be held at the Loews Miami Beach hotel in Miami, FL July 26-29, 2018.
Violent crimes involving, murder, mayhem, or malice, present a unique set of challenges for criminal defense lawyers. These are the most difficult cases; police and prosecutors devote more time and resources to them, jurors are more likely to convict, and judges send clients away for life without blinking an eye. For these reasons, it is crucial that defense counsel are at the top of their game and devote our best efforts and resources to winning these cases.
Our experienced faculty will teach you how to craft and litigate winning motions from forcing the prosecutor to turn over exculpatory evidence to cutting-edge techniques for >suppressing unreliable eyewitness identifications. You'll learn to try complex cases involving violent crimes; from how to pick a jury that is ready to accept the theory of defense, winning a murder case, to preventing your client from being committed for life as a result of a past sex conviction.
Whether it be a civil protest that turns into mayhem, clients accused of being gang members, or defending the ever-increasing prosecution of terrorism cases, join your international NACDL colleagues on the waterfront in Miami Beach, where our faculty will provide you with new perspectives, tools, and strategies to help get your clients to their ultimate goal: returning home.
