Sentencing: Making the Best of a Bad Situation
About this Program
"The defense lawyer can be the only thing standing between the defendant and imprisonment." The words of experienced defense attorney Herald Price Fahringer eloquently encapsulate the immense responsibility and creative demands with which an attorney must contend when defending a client facing sentencing. Fahringer and fellow attorney Erica Dubno examine the many considerations an attorney must observe in order to maximize leniency in the ruling. Focus areas include the probation interview, the pre-sentence report, and the sentencing memorandum.
I. The Probation Interview
II. The Pre-Sentence Report
III. Persuading the Judge
IV. The Purpose of the Sentencing Memorandum
V. The Structure of the Sentencing Memorandum

I really enjoyed this and learned a lot from it about properly preparing the client for sentencing and for properly preparing the sentencing memorandum and accompanying argument.
Great program, very informative.
Only problem with the Faringer-Dubno series is that there aren't enough of them to fulfill my entire CLE needs.
I like this tandem because you can use what they suggest right away; it's "take it back to the office and use it."
Excellent- for refresher and NEW info that I can definitely use in my Federal Court Cases.
Interesting discussion. Thanks
I found the suggestions concerning Sentencing Memorandums very helpful.
Very informative session about a traditionally overlooked aspect of a criminal case.

such an interesting duo of presenters--both so articulate in such different ways
Interesting perspective on the sentencing process from the point of view of defendant's counsel.
Comprehensive and helpful to those new to criminal law.
The best presentors at Lawline.
Best lawline presentation I've seen.
thought lecture was very thorough with many practical tips that while embedded in the law, lawyers are unaware or, dont use, or dont understand practical implications, like going with client to Pre-sentence interview
Practical, informative and well organized. The principal speaker's technique of using illustrative metaphor as a means of persuasion is applicable in a variety of practice settings. In short, a superior course in every way.
