section update Criminal Law Section By Jessica Stern Stern Law LLC T his Bar year, the Criminal Law Section has been able to provide a CLE Speaker Program to our members every month. The Board carefully planned programs that are relevant to both Criminal Defense and Prosecution practitioners, along with those who practice in both the State and Federal court systems. With registration, you are provided a delicious lunch and beautiful midtown view from the Jones Day conference room, where fellow practitioners and friends (old and new) sit together sharing an intimate and beneficial dialogue. While many of our members have known each other for years, new members are warmly welcomed and easily find comfort and value within the group. If you missed January’s Georgia and SCOTUS Case Law Update from the acclaimed Don Samuel, you surely don’t want to make that mistake again!
