The goal of the Capital Case Litigation Initiative Brown Bag sessions is to bring together capital case and complex homicide prosecutors to discuss a variety of emerging issues and topics; to workshop ideas together and arrive at solutions; and to connect individuals to resources and a larger network of prosecutors.
This session is open only to capital case and complex homicide prosecutors.
