Moving Criminal Justice Online: Challenges and Opportunities for New Attorneys

This program will discuss the legal and professional implications of handling trial processes online. Though digital processes are in many ways a force for progress, uneven access to technology and resources has the potential to disrupt an equal distribution of legal representation. The webinar will focus on both the practical and substantive effects of digital lawyering in criminal law. Speakers will specifically address their experiences to suggest ways in which young lawyers may seek opportunities to improve their digital practice while ensuring the best possible representation for their clients.

Letter I have sent out to multiple government officials and news media that has covered up the kidnapping of my mother for 2 years Hi, Here's the link to the file: https://1drv.ms/w/s!AiIso7KP3aFbgSlP5fpZhvItZz7A Video I did for mom https://youtu.be/Ei7XXs2UAM8
Fantastically corrupt Nigerian institutions. This is supposed to be our 63 million US dollars arson insurance claim. Pres. Buhari, Magu of EFCC and other agencies are using the language of looting to hold on to our claim. Knowing fully well using the British language ‘looting’ cannot change the ownership. Former IGP MD Abubakar this horror commander from his CP Lagos era. They’re from Daura, Katsina State, Borno State and Adamawa State. But are pretending to be Anacho Uzomba and Michiko and our three kids who lived in Den-en-chōfu, Tokyo. Or Anacho who worked tirelessly in the sun, rain and snow in our company, Miana International Limited’s dockyard/okiba in Saitama-ken Great Japan. The strong strength of our claim. They must start behaving like humans and apologize for all their multiple horrors, including to the families of the many murdered witnesses mainly in Lagos State, because it is now clear to us why they used Greenoaks Global Holdings in Great Britain to hijack Union Assurance in 2014 to have access to our claim. Buhari with his APC party were already on the ground in Lagos before he became president, although for we APC and PDP are the same in criminality. Money in the Nigerian treasury doesn’t belong to the criminal individuals/groups, but law abiding citizens of our country. Enemy of Nigerians with GTB su***de loan, empty vessel Presidency, allow us to receive our claim and stop the assault on the unity of Nigeria.

In 2015, I filed a lengthy, fully evidenced complaint against Weld County Colorado District Court Chief Judge James Francis Hartmann. On January 22, 2016 Colorado Commission on Judicial Discipline Director William J. Campbell issued his fraudulent response. In an upcoming fully evidenced article to be posted on my website https://bouldercountycorruption.com , William J. Campbell's "findings" will be dissected, as compared to the actual evidence of Judge James Hartmann's criminal acts spanning 8 years, and 4 Courts. This is guaranteed to make for some enlightening reading regarding the staggering corruption within Colorado's judicial Discipline Commission, as Hartmann's criminal actions were committed not only within his judicial capacity, but also in his personal capacity, as he concealed, aided, abetted, and compounded multiple felonies, then obstructed justice and committed felony perjury to conceal his involvement. Stay tuned, as the attached report is ripped to shreds.https://bouldercountycorruption.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/JudicialDiscipline_Redacted.pdf
