Symposium on the Sufficiency of the Evidence in Criminal Cases:
The Standard of Appellate Review for Convictions Based On Direct and Circumstantial Evidence, Jury Instructions, and the Conduct of Criminal Trials

 

This four hour CLE has two segments.  The appellate segment is devoted the sufficiency of the evidence standard of review in criminal appeals, the viability of having a traditional and circumstantial evidence standard of review, and whether the jury should be instructed on the difference between direct and circumstantial evidence.  The trial segment will focus on the implications of these appellate issues for the conduct of criminal trials.  Topics of discussion for the trial segment will be the difference between direct and circumstantial evidence, whether juries should be instructed on the difference between direct and circumstantial evidence, and how such an instruction would impact criminal trials and trial strategy.


This program is jointly sponsored by the MSBA’s Appellate Practice and Criminal Law Sections.
