The Criminal Law Section proudly presents its annual update, which once again engages compelling speakers focusing on cutting-edge topics to help us make the most of our justice system, our professional lives, and the lives of those we serve. From the Chief Justice of the Florida Supreme Court, to the Administrative Judge of the Criminal Justice and Trial Divisions of his judicial circuit, to a longtime member of The Florida Bar Board of Governors, to specialists -- leaders all -- in ethics, immigration, DUI, mental health, appeals, and the future of death as punishment in this state, we trust this program will not only bring you up-to-date with what's going on in Florida's criminal courts but infuse your practice with liberty's necessary spark for the year to come.
