Death Penalty Defense • Unified Defense October 27–28, 2017

10/27/2017 12:00 PM - 10/28/2017 12:30 PM (GMT-07:00) America/Los_Angeles

Capital defense requires a unified defense theory exhaustively investigated and carefully considered by a unified team. In this CLE you will learn new legal tools and new factual developments critical to the best unified defense, including: exempting severe mental illness from death penalty eligibility, hot-button legal issues, persuasive social history investigations, and how to create a unified theory of the case maximizing the likelihood of a life verdict from the jury. SPEAKERS INCLUDE: Dr. Bonnie Nagel, OHSU Depts. of Psychiatry & Behavioral Neuroscience; Attorney Todd Maybrown, Seattle; Mitigation Specialist Rebecca Ohler, Forest Grove; ODOC's Deputy Director Brian Belleque; Attorney Jenny Cooke, Portland; and Investigator James Comstock, Portland.
