Ruling on evidence is one of the primary responsibilities of every judge. Taught by experts in the field of evidence, this full-day educational program for both new and experienced judges will focus on current and emerging evidentiary issues (both criminal and civil).

The day-long agenda will include presentations by each of the faculty with time allotted for Q&A and discussion with colleagues. There will be all new topics this year:

  • 2018 in Review
  • Forfeiture By Wrongdoing
  • Lay and Expert Testimony
  • Miscellaneous Criminal Issues (Sexual Assault Cases, OUI Drugs and DRE Testimony, and Issues in Domestic Violence Cases)
  • Parameters of Cross-Examination
  • Pre-Arrest Silence
  • Use of Discovery in Civil Trials
