The Partners of Chartier & Nyamfukudza have a strong belief in continuing education as the law and technology are always changing. To the end, recently C&N Paralegals Kim Thelen and Lizzy Cary attended the Federal Defender Investigator Paralegal Seminar in Minneapolis, MN. The two-and-a-half-day program covered a wide range of criminal defense topics specifically targeted toward investigators, paralegals, mitigation specialists, and social workers, who work at the federal level. The seminar included a mix of plenary and concurrent breakout sessions including presentations on areas such as sentencing mitigation, mental health and cognitive impairment issues, document management and analysis, online investigation, BOP issues, and offense-specific tips for building a defense in a variety of federal cases.
According to Kim and Lizzy, it was an awesome event that is already paying dividends!
