About the Program
Our panel convenes just prior to the 30th anniversary of the release of arguably one of the most seminal cases in Connecticut appellate jurisprudence, State v. Golding, 213 Conn. 233 (1989). Criminal defendants frequently rely on this method of reviewing previously unpreserved constitutional claims on appeal. Our panelists will discuss the evolution of Golding review over the past 30 years, including the recent modification of the rule in In re Yasiel R. in 2015. We will discuss views of the effectiveness of Golding review in raising unpreserved constitutional challenges in the criminal context as well as its proper use and most effective ways to utilize Golding review.
You Will Learn
- About the history/evolution of such a seminal method of appellate review
- The most effective ways to successfully obtain Golding review (i.e., the first two prongs result in obtaining review and the second two prongs focus on the merits of the constitutional challenge)
Who Should Attend
This seminar will benefit attorneys who practice in criminal, child protection, or appellate law.
