The Criminal Appellate Brainstorming Program

In this program, members of the post-conviction panel can brainstorm their assignments with other panel members in order to spot issues and develop case strategy. Brainstorming also allows the attorney to identify areas where more research or investigation is needed.  The unit sets up the brainstorming session by polling the panel for volunteers.  The sessions are held conveniently by video conference.  Volunteers earn one credit for participating, up to two credits per year for participating in the peer brief review,brainstorming, and moot court programs.  If you wish to schedule a brainstorming session, or for more information, Contact Murray Kohn at mkohn@publiccounsel.net.
