Overview

In 2017, New Jersey began implementing the Bail Reform and Speedy Trial Act, which nearly eliminated cash bail. Three years later, what does the pre-trial process look like for criminal defendants in New Jersey?

This program, taught by veteran criminal defense attorney Adrienne Edward, will walk viewers through a step-by-step guide to the pre-trial process, and identify best practices for advocating for criminal defendants. Ms. Edward will discuss the difference between the pre-trial detention and pre-trial release processes, and explain what to do on behalf of your client, from the time the client is arrested through representation at the detention hearing, and how to oppose a motion for pre-trial detention if the State files one.


Learning Objectives:

  1. Act quickly when your client is arrested
  2. Advocate for a client when the State moves for detention
  3. Argue against a motion for pre-trial detention at a detention hearing
  4. Identify the forms that are used throughout the pre-trial process
