Virtual series explores what every Massachusetts criminal lawyer needs to know

Join the Massachusetts Bar Association’s Criminal Justice Section for a virtual program series on the ever-changing area of criminal law in Massachusetts District Court. The series will offer an opportunity for practitioners on both sides of the aisle to learn important lessons from judges, probation officers, defense counsel and other presenters from across the commonwealth.

The first program in the series will focus on getting to know the court, arraignments and general motion practice. Expert panelists, including judges from across the state, will discuss their courtroom practices, what they like to see from the prosecution and defense, and what needs work.

The second half of this program will include a breakout session, where defense attorneys will receive private trainings on best practices at initial court hearings. Participants will have the opportunity to ask expert panelists a variety of questions.

Special pricing is available for practitioners on the CAFL, YAD and MH Division panels, and government attorneys, who may attend for $25. Call MBA Member Services to register at (617) 338-0530.

This program is approved for 3 YAD Appeals/ Criminal Appeals/ YAD Trial/ Criminal Trial credits.
