Steve Friedland presents on criminal law and procedure at NCBA meeting
At the annual meeting of the Criminal Justice Section of the North Carolina Bar Association (NCBA), held November 19, Elon Law professor Steve Friedland presented on recent federal and state court decisions impacting criminal law and procedure in North Carolina.
Friedland’s presentation, which was part of a day-long Continuing Legal Education program at the annual meeting, reviewed decisions by the U.S. Supreme Court, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, and the North Carolina appellate courts.
"Because of increasingly vague decisions by the U.S. Supreme Court, we are seeing a proliferation of criminal law cases coming before the Fourth Circuit and state courts seeking interpretation of those decisions," Friedland said, summarizing one of the themes of his presentation. "In response, the Fourth Circuit and North Carolina courts have been crafting new precedent seeking greater clarity, as opposed to ad hoc determinations."
