I appear at the Criminal Justice Institute in St. Paul, MN on August 23rd. This Institute is one of the largest in the upper midwest and brings together judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, cops and more. This year, I appear as one of the experts.
I am going to take a big picture view of how criminal defense attorneys win jury trials. I will look at voir dire, opening statements, cross examination, direct examination and finally, closing arguments. As there is only so much time, it will be impossible to get into too much depth. However, I believe that there are certain truths and certain requirements necessary in order to win.
It should be a lot of fun.
