Details
  • We have a new ethics rule, effective January 1, 2014. It requires every lawyer to do something no lawyer was required to do in the past. And it’s a very good thing. If a lawyer knows of CREDIBLE AND MATERIAL EXCULPATORY INFORMATION ABOUT A CONVICTED PERSON, he or she must do something about it. What exactly? Come to the CLE and find out.

  • “ER 3.10 is based on the assumption that every lawyer must play a role in rectifying the conviction and preventing the incarceration of an innocent person. These are core values of the judicial system. They are now mandatory ethics rules. For all of us, not just and defense lawyers. And for good reason, 3.10 does not apply to prosecutors—they have their own rule—one even stronger than 3.8. Come see why on May 6.”

  • “When an Arizona prosecutor knows of new, credible, material evidence creating a reasonable likelihood that a convicted defendant did not commit an offense of which the defendant was convicted, the prosecutor must do promptly disclose the evidence to . . . [come to the CLE to find out who].”

  • “If a judgment of conviction was entered regarding the likelihood of a wrongful conviction, the prosecutor must also make reasonable efforts to . . . [this too will be covered at the CLE].”

  • “If there is clear and convincing evidence of a wrongful conviction, a prosecutor shall take additional steps . . . [what are these elusive steps?]."

Up to 1.5 hrs. toward the annual ethics CLE requirement.  Lunch provided.
