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.

This program will cover sentencing and provide all attorneys with an excellent primer for understanding the sentencing structure in the commonwealth. Lee Gartenberg, the former director of inmate legal services at the Middlesex Sherriff’s Office and a former member of the Massachusetts Parole Board, will give an overview of sentencing, good time, speedy trial calculations and much more.
 
From the ADA's perspective: Is the defendant really serving all the time I am asking for?

From the defense counsel's perspective: How long will my client have to serve time if they are found guilty or take a plea?

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.

This webinar will be hosted using Zoom. Registration is required by 9:30 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 9, to participate in this program. After you register with the MBA, please look for an email from MassBar Education with the Webinar ID and Password. The email will be sent before the program.
