The NDNY-FCBA Criminal Practice Committee will present the CLE program, “Criminal Pretrial Motion Practice and Federal Criminal Law Update” on Thursday, May 14, 2015 at the James T. Foley Courthouse, 445 Broadway, Albany, New York.  This program is a reprise of the November 13, 2014 program presented in Syracuse and will offer 3.0 credits towards the professional practice requirement.

The focus will be on criminal pretrial motions, with sections on practice issues (e.g., which motions to bring; whether to seek a pre-motion conference with the AUSA); procedural issues (e.g., when do I need supporting affidavits, when am I entitled to a hearing); and substantive issues (with segments on the law relating to the key types of typical motions). The program will include a brief segment on new developments (including new retroactive guidelines amendments). The program will conclude with an interactive judges panel.
