How to Deal with Survivors and Victims of Crimes as Clients/Witnesses and Litigants Without Burning Out

Criminal, Family Law, Well-Being Track (Central Meeting Room 1)

Victims and witnesses who are survivors of violence (sexual, emotional and physical abuse) are often reluctant to cooperate with attorneys and testify in court proceedings. Many times they are suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or through their previous experiences, have been re-victimized by justice systems that were not properly equipped to adapt to the rights and needs of such survivors. As legal professionals we have been educated on the law and procedures, but many attorneys and judges often lack specialized training in dealing with such victims and witnesses. Related procedures are sensitive to proper methods of questioning these individuals without putting them on the defensive and further causing harm. It is our duty to ensure that they understand their access to justice and guide them past the impediments and obstacles such as lack of knowledge about their rights and legal representation.Each presenter will share their experiences with dealing with such survivors and victims and give insight and techniques to help other legal professionals represent such individuals in an effective, compassionate, fair and humane manner while ensuring that we as attorneys do not burn out or do so to our detriment.Access Seminar MaterialsCLE Credits For This Program:

Now Daubert, Now What?

Civil Litigation , Criminal Track (Central Ballroom CD)

The Supreme Court of New Jersey recently adopted in State v. Olenowski a state law version of the Daubert framework to evaluate the admissibility of expert testimony in criminal cases under N.J.R.E. 702. Why is this change in the law, which parallels the Court’s previous adoption of Daubert factors in civil cases, important? How might it affect admissibility challenges to experts for either the prosecution or the defense moving forward? In this presentation, a leading Evidence law scholar, judges, and practitioners from the State and the Office of the Public Defender will discuss the traditional use of forensic science in criminal and quasi-criminal cases in federal and state courts, spotlight key facets of the Olenowski opinions, and consider what the future might bring under the Daubert CLE Credits For This Program: Access Seminar MaterialsCLE Credits For This Program:
