Presented in cooperation with the NJSBA Criminal Law Section

If your practice concentrates in criminal law, it is essential that you read each significant published case and keep abreast of changes in the law. If you only occasionally handle criminal law matters, the need is even greater that you keep aware of recent case law developments in order to represent your clients competently and avoid malpractice! An easy way to bring yourself up to date is to attend this presentation.

Hear from leading criminal law attorneys, Joseph Paravecchia, Esq. and Alan Zegas, Esq., two of our state's leading criminal law practitioners. This will be a fast-paced, think-on-your-feet seminar that will highlight the lead cases through a discussion of the legal question presented, the case holding, and the impact of that holding on the practice of criminal law. This is sure to be a super-energized way to stay up-to-date on the latest developments in criminal law.
