I see that my buddy and noted Texas defense lawyer Mark Bennett is speaking at Center for American and International Law CLE called “The Mind and Criminal Defense”. It’s a one day course on Capital Mitigation and it sure looks interesting, but unfortunately it conflicts with my schedule.

Other defense lawyers – especially those that do death penalty litigation, which I do not – should seriously consider attending if at all possible.

Bennett is giving a talk on “Free Will: What It Is and What We Can Do With It”. I wonder how he feels about being billed as Mark Bennett, Esq.
