2013 Fall Meeting & Seminar
Defending the Unthinkable: Zealous Advocacy in Sexual Assault & Child Victims Cases
Savannah, GA / October 16-19, 2013
"Now, more than ever, the defense needs to be on top of the newest techniques, strategies, science, and psychology available to boldly and successfully counter the prosecution's case. In order to effectively serve your clients charged with sex offenses, you have to be prepared to aggressively confront the prosecution and their witnesses.
This unique seminar will equip you with the knowledge base, strategies, and methods to win even the most difficult of cases. We will address modern charges of sexual misconduct in cases involving child pornography, female sex offenders, cell phone data, false confessions, and much more, while also analyzing child development, adolescent sexuality and communication, and providing you with strategies for confronting "other acts" evidence.
Join your NACDL colleagues in historic and beautiful Savannah-a southern gem bursting with charm-where dramatic old-world architecture mingles with trendy restaurants and art galleries, and prepare yourself for being the best possible advocate for your client at trial."
The seductive appeal of aggressive advocacy: and why you should avoid it
"Few barristers will ever find themselves publicly lambasted to quite the same extent as Mr McNulty, but if it does nothing else the case should serve as a constant reminder that with the great privilege of advocacy comes a corresponding duty. No scheme of registration and accreditation will ever replace the individual advocate’s duty to practice the craft with discretion, tact and responsibility."
