    People with mental disabilities may be at greater risk of wrongful conviction than others in the criminal process for myriad reasons, such as being more likely to confess to crimes they did not commit; having difficulty communicating exculpatory or mitigating facts to their attorney; or being impaired in their ability to understand witnesses. Join our panel as they address how ethical issues such as Model Rule 1.14 come into play when representing clients with mental health issues.

    Topics to be discussed include:
      • Representing clients with diminished capacity
      • Competency and mental health evaluations
      • Mental state defenses
      • Mitigation at sentencing
      • Community-based services to prevent individuals with mental illness from interacting with the criminal justice system
      • Investing in community services to avoid the criminal justice system
