Local CLE Seminars and Training
Mark L. Bennett, Jr.
Johnson v. United States
This case invalidated the residual clause of the ACCA statute. Because persons sentenced under this portion of the ACCA are actually innocent of the penalty, it is retroactive. The Kansas FPD will review all District of Kansas cases to determine who may be eligible for relief. Please notify us if you have a former ACCA client so that we do not miss anyone.
Each year, the Kansas Federal Defender's Office presents two day-long CLE programs, in April and in October.
Every other month, a one-hour CLE lunch is held in each division.
On alternating months, CJA attorneys host FED Talk, an informal gathering that includes a short presentation on a selected topic, then open discussion about criminal practice issues in the District of Kansas.
