Visiting Associate Professor of Law
New York Law School
Not a criminal defense attorney? Come learn the basics of New York City criminal law practice.
What should you do and what questions should you ask when a client calls you about a criminal matter? How do you counsel your client? What should you be sure not to do? And when you get to court, what rights should you preserve? What ethical issues may come up, and how should you navigate them if they come up?
Learn the inner workings of a New York City criminal courtroom. Find out everything you need to do to preserve the rights of your client, whether dealing with a minor problem or a serious matter, from the first minute your telephone rings until the dust settles. This program is a must for any attorney unfamiliar with criminal law practice.
