Miranda v. Arizona and its Legacy on its 50th Anniversary


Created on October 17, 2016




On June 13, 1966, the United States Supreme Court issued one of the most important decisions in our judicial history. In Miranda v. Arizona, 384 U.S. 436, 86 S. Ct. 1602 (1966), the Court held that statements obtained during a police-dominated interrogation are not admissible if the defendant was not given a full warning of his or her constitutional rights. Virtually everyone who has ever watched television knows that a defendant has the right to remain silent, among other rights. However, there is so much more to this dynamic decision, which changed the legal landscape for all criminal cases.

Veteran Supreme Court practitioner Erica Dubno, who was selected as one of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers by the National Trial Lawyers Association, discusses this iconic decision and traces its consequences over the last 50 years. Counsel uses Miranda to address historical and contemporary issues including police coercion and the right to counsel.

The program provides practical advice and helpful tips for criminal practitioners. The program is also indispensable for any attorney who might receive a late night call from a friend or relative who was confronted by the police. This course is relevant for practitioners at all levels.
