NACDL’s 56th Annual Meeting & Seminar will be held at the Westin St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco, CA, July 24-27, 2013. The hotel is located in the heart of San Francisco, on Union Square and is surrounded by world class-shopping, restaurants, and theatres, with a cable car stop outside our front door or a short walk from the Financial District, Chinatown, and Moscone Convention Center.
PROGRAM SUMMARY: Far too often, the public does not quite comprehend the severity of unjust prosecution, the extent of false convictions, nor the impact of these instances on our clients—whose lives are often hanging in the balance.
But for criminal defense practitioners who are confronted with a wide variety of real cases daily, this is what we do; this is who we are; real lawyers defending real cases, seeking real justice.
With charges ranging from murder and drug conspiracies, to public corruption and internet porn, effectively defending the accused has become increasingly challenging in the modern media-savvy world.
This program and faculty, comprised of the true “lawyers’ lawyers,” will offer you insight and strategies from the minds and hearts of some of the best criminal defense litigators in the country. Learned from years of working in the trenches of justice, these "Masters" of the criminal defense bar will share their methods and techniques, and offer practical everyday advice for effectively presenting real defenses for real clients, in real cases, confronting real lawyers.
Join your colleagues from around the country in San Francisco, and equip yourself with the knowledge and confidence to successfully handle the real cases confronting real lawyers every day.
