Today was spent in a CLE for Virginia's criminal bar.
Unfortunately Prof. Bacigal had some sort of attack during his presentation. At the end of the CLE we were told he is doing OK. Hopefully he will be soon well.
Prof. Groot, one of my law school profs, lectured on how reasons other than Miranda can be used to exclude confessions. One, of course, was coercion. The other was confession induced by promise. I've argued that before and gotta say the judge looked at me like I was nuts and shut me down pretty quick.
The rest was interesting (especially the section on handling the press) but not particularly helpful.
