Bail and pre-trial release are essential components of the modern U.S. criminal justice system, and bail has recently become the subject of much debate. This course will discuss how imperative it is to have your client released pre-trial when possible, and the basics of arguing for pre-trial release. When your client cannot afford cash bail, the course also reviews common release conditions that can be utilized in the alternative. The course will also survey the various approaches to bail reform, and weigh the arguments for and against it. By understanding the issues surrounding bail at both the micro- and macro-levels, attorneys will be better equipped to obtain favorable results for the clients at the outset of their cases that will resonate throughout their proceedings. This course will discuss the common hurdles and creative solutions that attorneys can implement to obtain those results.
