Marsey’s Law & Crime Victim Rights: A Guide for Criminal Defense & Civil Attorneys

Why should defense attorneys and civil attorneys even care about crime victim rights? Defense attorneys need to know what rights a victim has that may impact their client’s rights. But what about civil attorneys? Maybe you represent a victim in a divorce case – do you want to also represent that victim in a domestic violence case? Or maybe your client was beaten up in a bar and there’s a lawsuit against the bar and defendant, do you want to also assert that client’s rights in criminal court? This presentation will give an inside look at what rights victims of certain crimes have that may impact a criminal trial as well as what rights a victim’s lawyer can assert on behalf of their client in a criminal proceeding.

Jenny Clifford, Assistant Deputy State’s Attorney, Winnebago County State’s Attorney’s Office will give a one hour presentation on Wednesday, September 12, 2018 at Noon at the bar office. Pizza and salad are available by advance reservation for $10.00. No charge if you bring your lunch. WCBA members can earn 1 hour MCLE credit. Non members may audit, if space is available. If you register online, please let the bar office know by seperate email if you want lunch.
