About the Program

Getting it Right: A Lawyer’s Responsibilities During Critical Phases of a Criminal Proceeding serves as a review of a lawyer’s ethical responsibilities to his or her client during critical phases of a criminal proceeding from pre-trial negotiations to the plea or trial election phase.  The seminar reviews the changes in a lawyer’s duty to advise his or her client and render professional advice on the best course of action pursuant to Sanders v. Commissioner, 169 Conn. App. 813, 153 A.3d 8 (2016).

You Will Learn

  • What their ethical responsibilities are to their clients;
  • What are the critical phases of a criminal proceeding;
  • A lawyer must give professional advice to his or her client on the best course of action to take prior to entering a guilty plea or electing to go to trial in a criminal proceeding; and,
  • How to avoid claims of ineffective assistance of counsel given the Connecticut Appellate Court’s holding in Sanders v. Commissioner, 169 Conn. App. 813, 153 A.3d 8 (2016).
