NACDL’s 2018 White Collar Seminar “Defending the White Collar Case: In & Out of Court” will be held at the Capital Hilton, Washington, DC November 7-9, 2018. Each year the white collar defense bar gathers to learn from each other, to improve their skills, and to ensure they are well-positioned to provide their clients the best defense possible. The power of prosecutors is great, but this defense revival meeting is even greater.  Attend and learn from the experienced, high-quality faculty, including NACDL and WWCDA member Susan Bozorgi.

Registration for non-NACDL members includes one year of membership with the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL). NACDL fosters an environment where women in criminal defense can support and learn from one another. Through education, online and in-person networking, leadership opportunities, and much more, women find the encouragement they need for professional growth and advancement.
