This program will consist of two panels: one discussing best practices in the commonwealth's dedicated Veterans’ Treatment Courts, and the other discussing how to best serve our servicemembers before the general criminal courts.

A suitable program for both prosecutors and defense attorneys, our panel of experts will discuss:

  • The unique challenges that persons with military history face in the criminal courts
  • How to best utilize services in your case

Special attention will be devoted to the BRAVE Act (An Act Relative to Veterans Benefits, Rights, Appreciation, Validation and Enforcement), specifically the recents changes to diversion.
