August 28, 2020 Recordings: Actual Innocence Habeas Issues
This program is focused on demystifying writs of habeas corpus, a long-misunderstood area of the law. By providing a view into both the defense and prosecution perspective, practitioners can enhance their trial skills, evaluate when a habeas action is appropriate, and learn about some of the techniques and resources used by experienced habeas counsel on both sides of the aisle.
This course was funded by a grant from the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals.
