Topic: VIRTUAL TRIALS: TIPS, TRICKS, AND THINGS TO THINK ABOUT WHEN MOVING FORWARD

Speaker: CARL T. GUTHRIE

Description: Moving from the theatre of the courtroom to the silver screen of the zoom courtroom requires adjustments to every part of an attorney's trial preparation. This program will bring you lessons learned from a zoom jury trial, and things every practitioner needs to think about when continuing forward protecting their clients' rights.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Carl Guthrie co-founded the Texas Poverty Law Project, a 501(c)(3) non-profit based in Travis County, Texas. TPLP provides direct legal representation to clients dealing with power imbalances caused by poverty at Justice of the Peace and Municipal courts, including criminal defense, eviction defense, and consumer protection. Carl also has a criminal defense firm where he primarily serves court-appointed clients. He is an Adjunct Professor of Trial Advocacy at University of Texas School of Law. In August of 2020, Carl and TPLP represented the accused in the nation's first virtual criminal jury trial.
