Virtual series explores what every Massachusetts criminal lawyer needs to know

Join the Massachusetts Bar Association’s Criminal Justice Section for a virtual program series on the ever-changing area of criminal law in Massachusetts District Court. The series will offer an opportunity for practitioners on both sides of the aisle to learn important lessons from judges, probation officers, defense counsel and other presenters from across the commonwealth.

  • Topics for ADAs:
    • How to determine what discovery you will need and how to get it
    • Deciding whether to bring in a witness or argue on the papers.
    • Determining what 58A factors apply to your case and how to argue them in light of your evidence
    • The defense called a character witness.  How do you conduct an effective cross-examination?
  • Topics for Defense Counsel:
    • The judge gave three days.  How do I prepare in time?
    • Do I want to call witnesses?
    • Should I stipulate dangerousness?
    • The ADA called the victim.  How do I properly question and preserve the record to argue it should not be used at trial?

This program is approved for 1.5 Criminal Appeals/YAD Trial/Criminal Trial credits.

Special pricing is available for practitioners on the CAFL, YAD and MH Division panels, and government attorneys, who may attend for $25 per program. Call MBA Member Services to register at (617) 338-0530.
