NACDL’s 2018 Fall Meeting & Seminar,”Decoding & Litigating Mental Health Issues” will be held at the Hyatt Regency in Savannah, GA, October 24-27, 2018.
Experts estimate that between 55 and 75% of all incarcerated people suffer from mental health issues. Decoding the defenses and untangling issues of competence begins the moment you meet a mentally ill client and the work continues until the case is finally resolved, whether by verdict, sentence, or dismissal. The cases are complex, the clients are challenging, and the stakes are high.
The nation’s top experienced lawyers, scientists, and doctors with expertise in mental health issues will cover issues ranging from competence to insanity defenses, jury selection and persuasion, and sentencing.
Join your colleagues in Savannah for this exceptional seminar. Decipher the tools you need to provide outstanding representation for your clients struggling with mental health issues while soaking in the southern gothic setting of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.
