The Department of Law is happy to invite you to this special open panel session with five experienced American defence lawyers who are visiting Aarhus University this afternoon. They are colleagues who all defend serious criminal cases in the dc area, USA, and are on a European Tour to visit different universities and interact with law students and faculty.

Programme

  • Introduction by Chris Leibig: What we do as defense lawyers and former public defenders and some of the challenges.
  • Death penalty: Joni Robin, death penalty lawyer in Northern Virginia, and Ellen Shultz, an investigator who has specialized in developing leads to avoid the death penalty, will talk about death penalty defense. 
  • Police shootings: Andrea Moseley just won a huge lawsuit against a police department in Virginia for a police shooting incident. As such she is familiar with that national issue. 
  • Internet crime and digital surveillance: Carey Citronberg is an expert in internet crimes and has done a lot on digital evidence, police surveillance of phones etc. Carey has a lot of experience defending non us citizens charged with crimes and he will discuss the constitutionality of Donald trumps immigration policy proposals.

There will of course be coffee, water etc.
