Motions practice is helpful and has been successful in Abusive Head Trauma cases. Participants in this workshop will learn the current state of the law regarding admissibility of scientific evidence and legal principles that are effective in preventing the defense from presenting theories not based in science and reason. Participants will also learn how to present these arguments before the court, both in oral and written arguments. The workshop will also cover effective cross-examination of the defense expert to highlight the flaws in their theories and qualifications as an expert.
