HYBRID: Winning Strategies Seminar

Los Angeles, CA

The two-and-a-half-day Winning Strategies Seminar is offered as a hybrid program (in person and virtual). The seminar brings together a dynamic group of attorneys and other legal professionals to speak on a wide variety of topics, all specifically designed to keep Defenders and CJA practitioners abreast of the most recent and important developments in federal criminal defense. Sessions include both large plenary lectures as well as smaller breakout sessions that meet the specific needs of the advanced practitioner and the less experienced attorney alike. The sessions will include such topics as: Keynote address by Christina Swarns, Innocence Project Director; How to Litigate Geofence Warrants, Black Drivers Have a Problem in Richmond, Virginia: How to Win a Selective Enforcement Claim; Supreme Court Update; Using Body-Worn, Cruiser, and Pole-Mounted Cameras to Your Client's Advantage During Motions Practice; Combatting AI - Identifying and Challenging AI Applications in Law Enforcement; Obtaining and Effectively Using Cellebrite Data at Trial; Integrating the Science of Adolescent Brain Development into Federal Criminal Practice; and Ethics and Artificial Intelligence.


We have applied for CLE accreditation in states that have mandatory requirements. We regret that we cannot respond to telephone inquiries regarding the status of CLE approval prior to the seminar. All information related to CLE will be emailed to attendees within two weeks following the program.
