Topics & Presenters

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

Judges, Prosecutors and their staff, Criminal Defense Attorneys and their staff. Thanks to the grant, the seminar is offered tuition-free to most participants.
