    Product Description

    The Supreme Judicial Court’s ruling in Commonwealth v. Long is lengthy and complicated. We know that police may not target drivers for traffic stops, citations, and further investigation because of their race—but what does that mean in practice, and how do you convince a judge to grant your motion to suppress?

    Our experts delve into the variety of records that exist to gather the data you need, how to obtain these records, break down what the court said (and did not say!) in Long, and provide experience-based practice tips for how to handle an opposing expert from the Commonwealth.

    Join our faculty as we break down the process and advise on how to avoid stumbling blocks.
