Discovery: Stay Out of Trouble — Knowing the Rules and Ethical Considerations

March 22, 2021

Webinar
1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. ET
90-minute presentation 
CLE: 1.50 Credits

A Prosecutor’s duty to provide discovery in a timely manner is fundamental to a defendant’s right to a fair trial. The failure to fully comply with discovery obligations can not only jeopardize your case, it can also jeopardize your career. This course will explore both the nuts and bolts of a prosecutor’s discovery obligations as well as ethical considerations in determining what evidence is discoverable. Against the backdrop of a multi-defendant, high-profile drug trafficking crime, the course will explore determining what evidence is discoverable under most rules of criminal procedure, the applicable rules of professional conduct, Brady/Giglio considerations, the use of informants, ethical rules and considerations when dealing with the media, electronic discovery, dealing with the 11th hour surprise by the lead investigator, and other discovery related issues. Participation is encouraged.

This program qualifies for 1.50 hours of legal ethics credit.
