COURSE TOPICS

Criminal Law Update
Professor Corinna B. Lain


Annual comprehensive review of developments in substantive and procedural criminal law.
The New Discovery Rules — Perspectives from the Bench, the Defense, and the Commonwealth
Douglas A. Ramseur, Hon. Bryan L. Porter, Hon. Tyneka L.D. Flythe

After many years and several attempts, the Supreme Court passed new discovery rules. The panel will discuss the changes and impact on practitioners, prosecutors, and the court.
Memory on the Witness Stand: The Admissibility and Science of Eyewitness Testimony
Lori R. Van Wallendael, Ph.D., Seth C. Weston, Esq.

Research into eyewitness memory of events observed under stress has revealed significant reliability issues. Admissibility of expert witnesses to explain such issues, however, remains mostly premised on the belief that jurors can decide such issues without the assistance of expert testimony. Is it time to revisit the admissibility of expert witness testimony?
Juvenile Law Explained: It Really Is Easier than Understanding Your Teenager
Professor Julie E. McConnell, Olymphia Perkins

This session will cover transfer, intent to certify, and the serious offender statute–how these options actually work and why they exist. The serious offender statute gives judges wide latitude on review and is based on the idea that adolescents have the potential to be rehabilitated and the statute incentivizes working to do so while they are in DJJ. Also covered–what needs to be in the Order for Commitment and the evidence-based changes that DJJ has made to the length-of-stay guidelines for non-serious offender commitments.
Are You Appealing?
Catherine French Zagurskie, Leah A. Darron

Appeals may be lost in the trial stage if one is not careful. Experienced appellate attorneys discuss and explain how to properly make and preserve objections during trial to lay the groundwork for the arguments on appeal.
Ethics Update and Discussion
Craig S. Cooley, Hon. Nathan R. Green

A well-respected defense attorney and prosecutor team up to provide ethics lessons and updates.
