This course provides an overview of criminal mitigation to criminal defense lawyers, and reviews various humanizing processes that a criminal law attorney can utilize to better advocate for his or her client. Mr. Silver discusses how the use of psychological analysis, which can also impact the factual analysis of the case, can paint a more positive picture of a client and increase their chances of success in the courtroom. Both experienced and novice lawyers will gain important insight into various criteria to consider and deploy at the pre-sentence or pre-plea stage of representation.

I. Summarize the definition and applicability of mitigation to a defendant's case

"Incredibly knowledgeable and effective lecturer! Very well-rounded and detailed presentation."

   Karen G

"Though I do not practice criminal law anymore, this course broadened my thinking about sentencing criminals. I especially resonated to the idea of a criminal as an individual - like me - and my failings are not so very different from his - "let him who is without sin cast the first stone". If I am ever a juror in a criminal matter (or take up the mantle of criminal defense again), this course will figure largely in my approach. Thank you."

"Hands down this was one of the best most informative MCLE courses packed into a own hour session that I have participated in this year! Thank you for your expertise in this area. It opened my eyes on several important issues."
