(5586) Masters of DUI 2022—May 5-6, 2022—Live (Tampa) and live webcast.

The 2022 edition of the Criminal Law Section’s Masters of DUI CLE is back in-person—for two days at the lovely Floridan Palace Hotel in Tampa—and promises a comprehensive, cutting-edge look at the prosecution and defense of alcohol- and drug-related vehicular offenses.

Designed for basic, intermediate, and experienced practitioners alike, our Masters of DUI faculty of judges, lawyers, and industry experts are as knowledgeable as they are balanced, presenting you with what you need to know from the perspective of both state and defense. Topics to be addressed include breath and blood testing, pretrial motions, cross-examination, marijuana DUIs, and accident reconstruction. In addition, of particular interest are our presentations on the all-important client interview, the administrative hearing process, writs of certiorari, and how to navigate serious bodily injury and death cases. All of this, and our all-star ethics panel, make the 2022 Masters of DUI a CLE event you won’t want to miss. Join us and register today!
