This program will focus attention on habeas issues, an area of criminal law practice that is not often well understood. By providing a view into habeas law and practice from both the prosecution and defense perspectives, this program will be useful for habeas practitioners and their staff, and for trial lawyers and their staff who want to steer clear of post-trial problems.
- What's New in Habeas & Legal Updates
- The Basics and Best Practices
- A Defense Perspective
- A Prosecution Perspective
- Tips for Better Legal Writing
- And more!
This course is funded by a grant from the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals.
