The ISBA Criminal Law Seminar features well-rounded presenters and timely topics particularly intriguing to both prosecutors and defense attorneys.
The CLE programming includes some familiar topics that are relevant to Iowa criminal law including updates on case law, a legislative update and charging, plea and sentencing considerations. An additional topic this year focuses on the science of DNA with Paul Bush, a DNA Lab Supervisor at the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation presenting.
