This best-attended, most inspirational seminar is held every year in San
Francisco and offers defenders from throughout the state the very best
in legal education from the masters themselves. Couldn't get to Macon,
Georgia for NCDC? Good news, Lisa Wayne and others are coming to you.
CACJ's Annual awards seminars feature only the masters of contemporary
trial tactics, state- and nationally-recognized experts on critical leading-edge
issues, and headline legislators, heroes, movers and shakers in the fight
for criminal justice. These respected presenters provide substantial insight
into the issues that challenge the criminal defense bar in California.
Like all CACJ seminars, this event presents the unique opportunity to
develop both professional and personal contacts in an atmosphere of camaraderie.
Grow your referral base as you meet wonderful new friends from all around
the state of California and beyond. Bring the family to enjoy one of the
world's greatest cities at its most enchanted time of the year.
