Did you missed the NACDL seminar last October 2013 in Savannah, GA on "Defending the Unthinkable Zealous Advocacy in Sexual Assault and Child Victim Cases"? No worries, because the top presenters from that seminar are coming to Alabama to give you the latest information and cutting edge techniques as it relates to Child and Adult Sex Crimes.
A FANTASTIC LINEUP OF SPEAKERS AND TOPICS:
Dr. Stephen R. Guertin, M.D. will present on the "Sexual Assault Examinations: How are They Done, and What Do the Findings Really Mean?" He will spend an hour on male exams and an hour on female exams. These 2 hours alone will be worthy of every penny you spend and your time at this seminar.
