Wrongful Conviction Training (Mar 2017)

Event Type: 
Thursday Mar 23, 2017 - 08:30am to 05:00pm PDT
Event Description: 

NACDL will conduct an in-person, one-day training for at least 150 defense attorneys on litigating post-conviction claims of innocence. The goal of this training is to increase the ability of attorneys representing individuals in post-conviction proceedings to efficiently and effectively evaluate and litigate cases involving claims of innocence.

National experts will provide cutting edge instruction on topics essential for litigating post-conviction cases, including: examining the PCAST Report and its implications for innocence litigation; statistical concepts in forensic science (including those discussed in the PCAST report); complex DNA mixtures (combined probability of inclusion, and probabilistic genotyping software); and overcoming the hurdles to obtaining wrongful conviction relief in plea cases.
