25th Anniversary Summer Session

NCDD Seminars and Sessions


July 10, 2020 - July 11, 2020

FREE 8-hour Seminar

In lieu of our Summer Session presented annually at the Harvard Law School, the NCDD is offering this interactive seminar, "Anatomy Of A DUI Trial."

To the many of you who registered early for the 2020 Summer Session, we offer our apology for having to cancel due to the coronavirus. Your reservation at The Charles Hotel may be cancelled without charge and your registration fees may be refunded or credited for a future NCDD seminar. We very much look forward to seeing you live again in 2021! For those of you who have previously attended the NCDD Summer Session, you know there is nothing quite like being in Austin Hall and Cambridge, MA, for the cultural and classroom education, the exchanging of ideas, and the camaraderie of joining together with DUI/DWI lawyers from across the country. We will dearly miss you this year, but rest assured, we will be back live next year with another stellar seminar!
