Every year brings changes to criminal law. The 2018 legislative session made some major changes in criminal law that went into effect on New Year’s Day. This webinar will discuss many of them, providing some analysis into the reasons for the changes and how they will affect both prosecutors and defenders. Among the changes discussed will be the changes in juvenile practice affecting who can and cannot be prosecuted, the advent of mental health diversion, and some changes in the Rules of Professional Conduct.Additionally, since the laws have been in effect for several weeks, there will be some discussion about effects that are being seen up and down the state in the early days of these changes.
