DUI cases can be complicated and confusing.

Judges must balance the different competing interests that often are present in a DUI prosecution. It is important that judges know about the intricacies of the stop, search and seizure issues, arrests, and a myriad of other criminal procedure issues, including motions for bail and sentencing issues. Further, judges need to be able to rule upon issues with regard to breathalyzer, blood/alcohol tests, field sobriety tests and have an understanding of the pharmacological effects of alcohol and drugs. Many cases involve the self-represented litigant which presents additional concerns and challenges. This program provides judges with state-of-the art information on these subjects and many others.

Through a grant from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), The National Judicial College (NJC) is presenting this three-day program. A limited number of travel/lodging stipends are available. Stipend seating is limited and first come first served.
