This program will feature four exceptional speakers and a diverse array of topics relating to federal criminal practice.  Our newest U.S. District Judge, Hon. Brenda K. Sannes, will discuss criminal litigation in her court.  Joyce Horikawa, Deputy Regional Counsel for the Bureau of Prisons, will address issues relating to serving sentences in federal custody.  Forensic Psychiatrist James Knoll, M.D., will speak about representing defendants with mental health issues. And, Professor Lauryn Gouldin of Syracuse Law School will discuss search and seizure issues relating to cellular telephone.  We are offering the program live in Syracuse, and in Albany, via video, because we expect that our spring 2017 criminal practice CLE in Albany will feature different speakers and topics.
