Every day, in jurisdictions across the country, prosecutors skirt Brady requirements and police officers skirt the truth. Compounding the problem is the inability of defense counsel to access information about police and prosecutorial misconduct, not to mention the inadequacy of laws to require production of that information.
We will explore building and using a police database, working with law enforcement experts to crack your case, what Brady means in modern 2020, and the intersection between technology and misconduct including the ways law enforcement employs body cameras and facial recognition technology. You will also experience specific skills-based lectures that will teach you effective trial and motions techniques.
Professor Alexandra Natapoff, author of the books "Snitching: Criminal Informants and the Erosion of American Justice" and "Punishment Without Crime" will be the featured speaker.
Join us for this timely and unique training on how to break through the barriers, and hold police and prosecutors accountable for both their actions, and inaction.
