Taught by dynamic speakers, this program offers every criminal practitioner — whether new, experienced, full-time or part-time — the opportunity to master complex criminal court topics and become a better trial attorney, criminal advocate and relentless student of law.
Attendees also receive the completely updated ABCs of Criminal Court, Second Edition, in both print and electronic formats, featuring 26 updated and brand-new criminal law and trial practice topics, and enhanced with graphic charts summaries and instructional material. Designed to be carried into court, this handy book is the only weapon an effective and skilled advocate needs.
The chronological "A to Z" approach to criminal law equips attendees with the knowledge to successfully:
- Handle the essentials of a jury trial, from preparation, defenses and objections to motions, evidence and voir dire
- Defend probation violations
- Master the applications of sentencing, habitual felon laws, sex offender registration rules and collateral consequences
- Navigate DWI, traffic basics and driving privileges
- Apply the new expunction opportunities
- Combat the intense stress and anxiety that every lawyer faces with true health and fitness practices
Although the "ABCs" of criminal court are greater than just 26 topics, this program and the accompanying publication offer a complete picture of the law that helps every criminal practitioner become an expert, one letter at a time.

Included with Program Registration:
The ABCs of Criminal Court is written based on the philosophy that, in any area of law, knowledge should begin and end with statutory and case law authority, a principle that assures accuracy. But how do we become experts in criminal law when there is such an unwieldy bulk of information? We learn 20 percent of information that we need 80 percent of the time!
Every topic explored in this book is one that is essential to a criminal court practice. Each topic surveys the most imperative 20 percent, and generates guideposts to lend you to the remaining 80 percent. Whether a new attorney or an experienced practitioner, the wisdom necessary to be a great criminal lawyer is found within these pages.
This book is not designed to be left on a bookshelf to collect dust, but to be carried in one’s briefcase or court-bag to serve as a quick reference for that 80 percent of information that remains the same trial-to-trial — defenses, questions of proper opening and closing techniques, voir dire questions, evidentiary foundations, etc. It serves as a complete, all-in-one reference source that serves as a 20 percent foundation that will grow your confidence and criminal practice to 100 percent of its potential.
