CLE Opportunities for Criminal Appeals and Habeas Lawyers in Georgia

There are some great CLEs coming up in the next few weeks and months for lawyers who do trial, appellate, or habeas practice. They range from the National to the local, but all of them will have something to offer.

  • NACDL’s Free Seminar on Padilla v. Kentucky. The Seminar is Titled “Padilla in Practice: Your Duty to Advise Clients of Immigration Consequences.” The seminar will be streamed live, and the first 40 people to sign up can attend at NACDL’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. If you are a criminal defense attorney the seminar will apprise you of your duties when representing clients who are not U.S. citizens. As an appellate or habeas attorney, this seminar will help you spot possible claims in the post-conviction setting. Best of all, it is absolutely free. Sure the other two seminars have bars and this one doesn’t. But you can always drink in your office, Mad Men style.
  • GACDL’s Fall Seminar. I have not missed one of these in almost ten years. Chatting with old friends and meeting new ones around the big fireplace at Brasstown Valley Resort in North Georgia is worth the price of admission alone. Added to that, distinguished lawyer, Bubba Head has set up a fantastic panel of speakers. Check it out. Sign up. If you aren’t a member of GACDL, join right now (PDF).
  • The Henry County, Georgia, Bar Association Fall Seminar. I will be speaking on preserving a record for appeal, and Professor Paul Milich will speak on Georgia Evidence. Information on that event will be posted soon. The event will be held at Reynolds Plantation Ritz Carlton. There will be plenty of time to hang out in their pool and watch beautiful Lake Oconee .
