Program Details


This presentation will cover the meaning, usage and strategies for using the new NYS Brady Order. It is intended as a three-hour lecture/interactive problem-solving session conducted for no more than a twenty-person group on first-come-first-serve application basis in a conference room setting. All defense attorneys regardless of experience level are welcome.


We will address:

  • the substance of the order itself;
  • its strengths and shortcomings;
  • potential problems with district attorneys and judges;
  • the interrelationship between the order and C.P.L. 240.20;
  • forensic science Brady issues; and
  • methods for memorializing Brady requests at every juncture in a case.


Attorneys are encouraged to bring their own case files where there is current Brady problem so as to facilitate group discussion.
