News from the Director

October 25, 2006

FDAP will be conducting a training seminar on Saturday, January 27 in the Court building in San Francisco. The Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) has agreed to cover the cost, so the seminar is completely free for the panel. The syllabus appears below.

The one-day seminar will have 6 hours of MCLE credit, including 1 hour of ethics. The seminar will cover a wide variety of topics, which should be of interest to panel members of all levels of experience. Topics include current cases pending in the California and U.S. Supreme Court (including Cunningham, which may be decided by the January seminar), updates on recent search and seizure cases, updates on the continuing stream of Crawford cases, an examination of the new CALCRIM jury instructions, a panel discussion of “practice differences” in how attorneys handle (and differ in handling) many client and practice situations, a talk by Justice Maria Rivera, and much more.

Attendees will receive written materials and a catered lunch and snacks.

This seminar will be a good chance to greet and chat with other panel attorneys and the FDAP staff attorneys, while getting caught up on a variety of timely items relating to your appellate practice.

If you are interested in attending, send an email to FDAP's "general information" mailbox, and provide your first and last name and your state bar number, and we will register you.
