Save the Date

This webinar will provide a framework for how criminal defense lawyers can effectively tackle evidence issues.   The presenter will review evidence problems from relevance and prejudice, through character and hearsay evidence (discussed at much greater length than in Part I), lay and expert opinion testimony, concluding with authentication and Confrontation Clause issues.

This is the thrid installment of a four-part webinar series on federal evidence.  In the first two parts, Rene Valladares will tackle the thorniest topics frequently encountered by criminal defense lawyers: character, impeachment, and hearsay.  The third part of the series will review a framework that can be used to tackle various evidence problems confronted by criminal defense lawyers.


Rene Valladares is the Federal Public Defender for the District of Nevada.  He is an adjunct professor at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Boyd School of Law, and the UNLV Criminal Justice Department. He lectures nationally on various criminal law and procedure topics including evidence and the defense of conspiracy cases. Mr. Valladares serves on the Federal Defenders' Performance Measurement Working Group.  Recently, Rene Valladares wrote a Defender's Guide to Federal Evidence: A Trial Practice Handbook for Criminal Defense Attorneys, published by NACDL.
