The White Collar Criminal Defense College is a “boot-camp” program for practitioners who want to gain advocacy skills and learn substantive white collar law.
Subjects to be covered this year include client retention, investigation in a white collar case, handling searches and grand jury subpoenas, and dealing with parallel proceedings.
The college is organized by the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL).
It runs from March 15-20, 2012 at the Stetson University College of Law in Gulfport, Florida (near Tampa).
Participants will have the experience of negotiating a plea, making proffers, and examining which experts to hire, and how to protect the client in this process. Interactive sessions with top white collar practitioners will give participants a chance to learn trial skills such as opening statements, cross-examination, jury instructions, closing arguments, and sentencing – all in the context of a white collar matter.
