    Product Description

    In your criminal law practice, the stakes are highest when homicide is the charge—a life has been lost. Another may face the strictest sentencing our legal system can impose. No matter which side of the counsel table you hail from—prosecution or defense—this program amps up your awareness of the most determinative scientific and social factors in homicide trials. Our panel brings you current on what is happening in Massachusetts courts on both fronts. They present cresting case law, discuss cold cases, examine crime scene analysis and reconstruction, and delves into surveillance and technology. The program provides guidance on attacking an expert witness and reviews gang evidence in murder cases. You come away from this program savvier, more aware, and more knowledgeable.

    Raise your homicide practice to a higher level.
