Georgetown University and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) will be holding a conference titled, "Defending the White Collar Case:In and Out of Court" September 22-23, 2005. The website states:
Georgetown University School of Law and NACDL will hold this jointly sponsored 2-day seminar at Georgetown University School of Law, September 22-23, 2005.
Today’s white collar climate is unlike any we have ever seen. With sentencing guidelines and government investigations bearing-down on corporate accounting scandals, the white collar bar needs to stay abreast of the latest strategies for representing corporate clients.
The federal guidelines have dramatically increased sentencing exposure, and more individuals and corporations are going to trial in white collar cases. Knowing when to plea is essential, but when trial is necessary, you need to understand the complex issues involved and know about the latest enforcement tools being used by prosecutors and how to avoid and discredit them.
Georgetown University Law Center and The National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers have produced this very timely and unique program to address lessons learned from current cases and investigations, and teach you the best ways of defending your clients on all fronts. Seasoned defense lawyers, corporate counsel, consultants and judges will share their stories and arm you with new skills, techniques, and knowledge to negotiate and try the toughest cases in the white collar legal arena, including the appropriate actions to take and what to avoid. Veteran prosecutors will also be on hand to contribute the government’s perspective on the most pressing issues facing the defense bar.
Join NACDL and Georgetown in addressing the new realities of white collar defense and threats to your clients.
