10th Annual Post-Conviction Conference
Litigating Post-Conviction Innocence Claims
The National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL), in collaboration with the Innocence Network, and supported by a grant awarded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, presents this essential training specifically for lawyers who handle post-conviction innocence claims. National experts will provide cutting edge instruction on topics essential for re-investigating and litigating post-conviction innocence claims. Innovative new strategies and topics will be featured.
Sessions will cover both forensic evidence and strategies to tackle difficult issues in post-conviction innocence claims, including: addressing racial discrimination at trial during post-conviction litigation; forensic genealogy; DNA: probabilistic genotyping; blood spatter; shaken baby syndrome/abusive head trauma; and navigating admissibility standards post-conviction.
