With laws formally codified in penal codes across the country, barriers still exist and greatly inhibit the effectiveness of these important laws. This webinar will include tips on charging, combating common defenses, and effectively translating cases to a judge or jury. From setting bonds to picking juries and using experts, the presenters will provide practical tips to evaluate and strengthen your case and move them from probable cause to beyond a reasonable doubt.
