|NACDL’s 11th Annual FREE Training for Post-Conviction Lawyers |
Remedying Wrongful Convictions
March 26, 2020, Chicago, Illinois – InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile
NACDL, in collaboration with the Innocence Network, presents an exciting new training specifically for lawyers who handle post-conviction innocence claims. National experts will provide cutting-edge instruction on topics essential for investigating and litigating post-conviction innocence claims. Innovative new strategies and the latest subject matter developments in post-conviction practice will be featured! Sessions will cover both forensic evidence and strategies to tackle difficult issues in post-conviction innocence claims, including: addressing official misconduct in innocence cases; crime scene reconstruction evidence; pattern evidence (fingerprints & firearms); genetic genealogy; and false confessions. Get more information and register here.
Pursuant to the grant funding, attendees must work on the screening, review, investigation and/or litigation of potential post-conviction innocence claims and you cannot work on the prosecution of criminal matters. By registering for this training, you certify those facts to be true. If you have any questions about eligibility to attend, please contact Senior Resource Counsel, Vanessa Antoun, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registration for this event is separate from the 2020 Innocence Network Conference which begins the next day and will be held on March 27-28 at the Hyatt Regency Chicago, which is just a short walk away. This conference is a national event that brings together attorneys, the exonerated, and their families for two days of educational sessions related to innocence work.
