Law Journal Symposium

The 2014 Law Journal Symposium will focus on legal, ethical, and practical issues facing the Criminal Justice system in Georgia. The Symposium will be held at the State Bar of Georgia Building on March 4th, 2014 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The goal of this year’s Symposium is to present a unique holistic view of Georgia’s criminal justice system, bringing together all who play a role in the process that occurs when persons are accused of a crime. Topic areas include: obstacles challenging those who prosecute, defend, or adjudicate criminal cases in Georgia; outcomes in criminal cases contradictory to the principles of the Criminal Justice system; legal inconsistencies or flaws in Georgia precedent or legislation; defendants’ and victims’ rights in criminal cases; the effect of the new Georgia Code of Evidence on criminal cases; and post-conviction issues.

The 2014 Symposium will present the papers of the following authors: Professor Ron Carlson and Deputy Chief ADA Mike Carlson, Professor E. Imwinkelried, Chief ADA Don Geary, Professor D. Michael Risinger, and Professor Donald E. Wilkes. CLE credit is available for registrants through the Institute of Continuing Legal Education in Georgia.
