Notable ABA event about plea negotiations

I received an e-mail alerting me to an intriguing event this fall in DC being presented by the ABA Criminal Justice Section.  The event is entitled "Ethics and Professionalism in Plea Negotiations: Best Practices and Worst Pitfalls," and here is an overview:

Learn from experts and leading practitioners about ethical and professional issues involved in plea negotiations.  Over ninety percent of all criminal cases are dispensed with through a plea process, but the process itself is seldom examined to identify strategic negotiating techniques and best practices for the prosecutors, defense lawyers and judge involved. Representatives of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, National Association of Attorneys General, Federal Public defenders, National District Attorneys Association, and National Legal Aid and Defender Association will address Best and Worst Negotiating Practices; How Prosecutors and Defense Lawyers Can Make Good Decisions about Plea Negotiating, The Terms of the Agreement; and Implementing the Agreement.  Don't miss this stellar line up of judges, defense attorneys, prosecutors and academics.  Click here for brochure.

As the brochure details, the event takes place on November 2, 2007, at George Washington University and has lots of notable sponsors and lots of notable participants.
