Garrison LLP, 1285 Avenue of the Americas
Come get schooled in plea agreements at this year's white collar
program inspired by the Varsity Blues college admissions scandal.
This explosive case involving elite universities, $25 million in
bribes, and 50 arrests has defendants split on whether to plead
out. The program will illustrate the plea negotiation process from
the perspective of prosecutors, defense attorneys, and defendants
and cover issues such as cooperation, the pros and cons of taking a
plea, the risks of a wait-and-see approach, the important role of
the federal sentencing guidelines, and the impact of the plea
agreement at sentencing.
