NACDL's 2016 Midwinter Meeting & Seminar will be held at the JW Marriott in Austin, TX, February 17-20, 2016.
Whether it is insanity, incompetence, or impairment; mental health issues affect bail decisions, sentencing, and the chance of winning at trial. Understanding the current science and being able to use it can be the key to successful representation of a client. Experts in the sciences and seasoned litigators with extensive experience representing mentally disabled or affected clients are converging in Austin, TX, to share their insights, knowledge, and understanding of mental health to assist you in helping your next client obtain a successful outcome.
This program will cover various aspects of mental health issues. Beginning with an in-depth review of the law from diminished capacity to insanity and mental retardation, you will learn about pharmacology, picking the best jury and getting them to care about your client, how to effectively cross-examine a variety of experts, and mitigation at sentencing.
Plan now to join your NACDL colleagues in Austin for this unique and timely training.
