Retroactivity: Are Convictions Ever Final?


MCLE Accreditation: This training has been approved for 1 general MCLE credit by the State Bar of California and Oregon State Bar.  The training may be eligible for MCLE credit in other states; a certificate of attendance will be available after the program.
Duration: 65 minutes (1.0 credit)
Original Program Date: Wednesday, May 31, 2017

Presenter: Tung Yin, J.D., Professor of Law, Lewis & Clark Law School. Professor Yin's bio is available here.

Description: When the United States Supreme Court issues a decision―such as Miranda v. Arizona―announcing a new rule of law and overturning a criminal defendant's conviction, did that rule apply retroactively, calling into question the conviction of all other prisoners whose convictions were flawed by the same constitutional violation? Surprisingly, the Supreme Court didn't start to address retroactivity until the 1960s. Despite seeming to settle the issue in Teague v. Lane in 1989, the Court issued more retroactivity decisions, and even Congress got involved with the issue in the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996. This program will provide an overview of this area of law and discuss how lower courts resolve the issue of retroactivity. Understanding this complex area of law can inform effective victims' rights advocacy.

Duration: 109 minutes (1.5 credits)
Original Program Date: Thursday, January 19, 2017

Presenter: Christopher Wilson, Psy.D. More information about Dr. Wilson is available here.
Facilitator: Meg Garvin, J.D., National Crime Victim Law Institute. Ms. Garvin's Bio is available here.

Description: Regardless of whether you practice criminal law, family law, employment law, tort law, or wills & estates, you will likely encounter clients with a trauma history. Understanding the brain’s response to trauma is critical to understanding seemingly counterintuitive behavior of clients such as exaggerated fear responses, continued or re-engagement with a perpetrator, non-or delayed disclosure of victimization, flat affect, and ambivalence about participating in justice systems. In this session, Dr. Wilson will unpack the science behind these behaviors in order to arm practitioners with the fundamentals they need to better serve their clients in and out of courtroom.
