    Product Description

    Cases involving weapons charges, drug activity, and the money that accompanies them aren’t for the faint of heart—they’re fact-intensive, law driven cases and demand a deep knowledge of "the way things work." Do you know your way around the action, stock, and barrel of a handgun? Know how to proceed where sentencing is accompanied by forfeiture of contraband? Are you hip to the latest pharmacopeia that snake its way through Massachusetts’ urban and suburban neighborhoods?

    Join us at this program and learn practical tips for prosecuting and defending gun and drug cases. Let this diverse panel of experts from both sides of the aisle bring you up to speed. Come away from this training with the "street smarts" you need to try cases surrounding the triumvirate of crime—Guns, Drugs & Money—and don’t miss your chance to see in person the guns and drugs at play in your cases.
