Description

The use of lab tests, witness testimony, and on-scene evidence in criminal investigations is standard and generally accepted. As citizens, we trust the labs, police officers and forensic scientists to gather and analyze evidence and administer justice accordingly. But what if lab tests were corrupted, witness testimony was unreliable or coerced, and evidence was tainted? In this CLE course, renowned attorney Jeffrey T. Schwartz will explain the extent to which corruption has infiltrated our criminal justice system and the degree to which we rely on evidence that cannot be trusted. The course will explain how to do your due diligence in verifying the authenticity of evidence you need to present at court. Using the parameters enforced by the American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors/ Laboratory Accreditation Board (ASCLD/LAB), the course will explain the many ways that the labs and police are failing to properly handle evidence and how to evaluate and verify evidence presented in court.

Description

The transfer of development rights in the City of New York usually involves an as-of-right transaction between two adjacent properties with a contiguous lot line. Circumstances sometimes require the use of advanced techniques utilizing an air parcel to store development rights for use at a later date. Depending on the location, development rights generated through the Inclusionary Housing program or in Special Districts (e.g., Highline Transfer Corridor, Southstreet Seaport) may also be transferred. This CLE course by a top New York City land use lawyer will familiarize attorneys with the language of zoning and development rights transfers, the due diligence necessary to determine if transfers have occurred, and the documentation and approvals required to implement both as-of-right and advanced transfers.
