Trial of Capital Murder Cases in Virginia - 2011 Cumulative Supplement Is Now Available
A cooperative effort of Virginia CLE and the Criminal Law Section of the Virginia State Bar, with financial assistance provided by a grant from the Virginia Law Foundation.
This essential resource is both a guide for attorneys and a source of information for judges who are involved with capital cases in Virginia. The book includes several tables of relevant cases arranged by different groupings: by defendant’s surname; by degree of aggravation and mitigation; by aggravator; and by the section of the Virginia Code offended. There is also a section discussing ineffective assistance of counsel issues. If you handle criminal cases in Virginia where capital punishment is even a possibility, you should have this book.
The fourth edition of this book was published in 2009. The book is available in both print and CD-ROM formats and is also available for immediate download from Virginia CLE’s website at www.vacle.org.
The 2011 cumulative supplement is now available from Virginia CLE. Click here to order.
