From the Buffalo Law Journal:
For the event, hosted by the New York State Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, there is a point made to bring to Buffalo “an impressive lineup of speakers” from not only Western New York but statewide and nationally for perspectives on criminal defense work and related topics. That’s according to attorney Tim Murphy of Legal Aid Bureau of Buffalo, where he is chief attorney for the Appeals and Post-Conviction Unit.
Murphy and fellow Buffalo attorney Brian Melber are association directors and lead organizers of the event.
“Our goal is to have something a little different than other CLE seminars,” Murphy said. “We like to bring together a broad range of practical skills, as well as feedback from attorneys on some of the great successes they’ve had. You don’t want to have an event that is all war stories from attorneys. You want to be able to walk away with some substantive information. We’re going to have some things that will catch everybody’s attention and they can walk away with some very useful information.”
The day-long seminar will be held [on Dec. 2] in the jury assembly room of the federal courthouse in Niagara Square. It provides CLE credits of 6.5 in skills and 1.5 in ethics.
