Has the explosion of true crime documentaries like "Serial" and "Making a Murderer" had an impact on the day-to-day justice system in Minnesota? Are defendants more likely to make post-conviction motions? Are jurors more skeptical about evidence against defendants? How can attorneys and judges maintain excellent practice in the face of these challenges? Find out from an expert panel:  a judge, a prosecutor, and two certified specialist criminal defense attorneys.

Registration starts at 4:15 p.m. with the program beginning at 4:30 p.m.  Please join us after the discussion for cocktails and light hors d'oeuvres.
