Representing Your Client Effectively in Congressional Investigations
Georgetown University Law Center
On Thursday, March 8, 2007, The American Bar Association Criminal Justice Section, Holland & Knight LLP and the ABA Center for Continuing Legal Education will present " Representing Your Client Effectively in Congressional Investigations." The 90 minute CLE program will be held at the Georgetown University Law Center, 600 New Jersey Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C.
With the advent of the 110th Congress and the change in control of both houses, a wide range of investigations in the House and Senate is anticipated. A Congressional investigation poses enormous challenges that are unique for counsel who are unfamiliar with these practices and procedures.
This program will allow you to learn how the process works from highly experienced professionals. The panelists include senior staff of several of the most powerful figures in Congress. It is an opportunity to learn about the process from their perspective as well as from the perspective of practitioners who have had experience representing clients in these venues.
