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, in rem forfeiture procedures, bond, and cell phone forensic discovery. An additional topic this year focuses on forensic metrology (the study of measurement) presented by one of the country’s leading legal scholars on scientific measurement for lawyers, judges, and criminalists.

After a successful implementation last year, interested persons will again have the opportunity to register for both the Criminal Law Seminar and the Juvenile Law Seminar (April 19) at a discounted bundle rate. Simply, click here to register for both seminars. To register for the Criminal Law Seminar only, please click the register button at the top of page.
