Bayfront Hilton, San Diego

California Attorneys for Criminal Justice (CACJ) and the California Public Defenders' Association (CPDA) are pleased to invite you to participate in the Capital Case Defense Seminar (CCDS) in San Diego at the Bayfront Hilton. The CCDS is an intensive educational opportunity for anyone involved in, or considering taking on, the defense of a capital case. It is designed not only for lawyers, but also for mitigation specialists, paralegals, investigators, and experts working in capital defense. The CCDS will also include sessions addressing murder and felony charges other than capital cases.

The CACJ/CPDA Capital Case Defense Seminar is the largest of its kind in the nation and has been held for over 40 years, beginning in 1978. CCDS is unique in that it offers lectures as well as specialized workshops that give participants the chance to brainstorm and exchange information with other participants. Experienced practitioners in any jurisdiction and those just entering the field can benefit from the lectures and workshops featuring experienced lawyers and experts, from both California and across the nation.

Capital Case Defense Seminar | 1555 River Park Drive, Ste. 105, Sacramento, CA 95815
