Skills Course - SKR2-CRIM-020819: Plea Bargaining

Time: 9 am to 12 pm

Contact: Hector Linares · halinare@loyno.edu · 504-861-5560

Location: Law School 111

(Friday, February 8, 2019) (9:00 am - 12:00 pm) (LS 111)

Upwards of 90 percent of state and federal criminal cases are resolved through plea agreements rather than trial. This skills course explores the fundamentals of negotiation in the context of criminal plea- bargaining. A seasoned attorney with experience as both a criminal defender and a prosecutor will use simulations and guided discussion based on real world examples to teach students effective negotiation strategy and tactics for reaching an agreement that advances your side's interests, whether you represent the defendant or the state. The course will also focus on the important ethical and practical considerations related to counseling clients regarding the terms of a proposed plea deal, the waiver of their trial rights, and the mechanics and collateral consequences of entering a guilty plea.

Note: This course satisfies skills competency requirement 2) Negotiation.
