Your client tells you a new version of what happened, just as he is about to go on the stand; an impassioned summation from a prosecutor is coming close to becoming improper; diligent witness preparation jeopardizes both a case and a career with just a few ill-chosen words. Nightmares of the criminal trial lawyer, these hazards can damage a career and a case despite the best intentions of the practitioner.

Join this panel of expert criminal trial and ethics practitioners as they explore these three pitfalls waiting to trap criminal practitioners: client testimony, closing arguments, and the most essential part of trial preparation, interviewing and preparing witnesses. Minefields waiting to trap criminal practitioners, these areas are doubly hazardous in that trouble can occur even when the practitioner is acting with the best of intentions and in complete good faith. As these problems can arise with little or no notice, it is essential that the trial practitioner be aware of these issues. This panel will explore how to avoid these problems and how disciplinary committees handle them when they happen.
