BBA Webinar: Pretrial and Compassionate Release During COVID-19: A Focus on White Collar Defendants in the Federal Courts

Tuesday, May 19, 2020 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM


The BBA presents live webinars via Zoom. Access to this program is free, included as part of your member benefit. Please register for this program through your BBA account to receive the Zoom webinar link.  In order to receive the Zoom webinar link, you must register at least two hours before the start time of the program.

We are in an unprecedented time as we all battle the challenges of COVID-19. There is heightened concern for our clients facing sentencing or in the prison system who are particularly vulnerable given the institutional obstacles to social distancing and lack of PPE. Are white collar defense attorneys having success in moving for compassionate release? On what bases? Tune into this webinar to hear from the U.S. Attorney's Office, Federal Defenders Office and defense attorneys who are in the midst of advocating for their clients.
