An annual continuing legal education seminar known as the Prof. Robert M. Pitler Annual Program on Criminal Law, Procedure, Evidence & Ethics will take place over two Fridays in October instead of the typical Saturday and Sunday format that it was known for.

Hosted by the Center for Criminal Justice, the annual CLE is named for the late professor Robert M. Pitler, a member of Brooklyn Law School’s faculty from 1988 until his death in 2015.

The two half-day programs will take place on Friday, Oct. 19 and Friday, Oct. 26 this year. Each day will be worth 3.5 credits and will include ethics credits.

The CLEs cover comprehensive updates to various areas of criminal law, procedure, evidence, ethics and immigration law. Leading experts run each hour-long segment, including Hon. Barry Kamins, former administrative judge at the Kings County Supreme Court, Criminal Term, who gives an annual lecture on search and seizure.

There will also be a review of a new evidence guide for attorneys as well as current criminal justice legislation followed by a panel on ethical issues facing prosecutors and defense attorneys.

Attorneys seeking to attend should register online at Proceeds benefit the Robert M. Pitler Criminal Justice Post-Graduate Fellowship.
