    Product Description

    The fifth amendment is a crucial constitutional right that comes up in many different situations in the criminal world. Every criminal defense lawyer needs to know how to spot fifth amendment issues and to avoid potential pitfalls.

    Many times the strongest piece of evidence against a defendant is their admission to the crime. The client has an absolute right to remain silent, but what challenges can be brought if they waive that right? Our experienced faculty teaches you how to spot fifth amendment issues, how to navigate the criminal process, and to use fifth amendment rights to best defend your client.
