Topics & Presenters

Described by participants as “the best seminar I have attended”, the virtual program will still feature presentations on essential defense trial skills (and ethics), given by many of our top-rated faculty -- all experienced Texas trial attorneys. 

The program will include opportunities for Q&A with the faculty.  This program is designed for attorneys with five or more years of experience, but attendees of all experience levels will find something concrete to take to their next trial.

This course is funded by a grant from the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals.

Who Should Attend?

With the exception of invited faculty, attendance is limited to Texas criminal defense attorneys.
