Lifer School 2013

“Bay Area Lifer School”

The Chief Justice Earl Warren Institute on Law & Social Policy and the
Post-Conviction Advocacy Project at Boalt Hall School of Law are hosting
UnCommon Law in its inaugural event as a nonprofit organization.

countless family members. You will learn the latest and best practices regarding:

  •  Client Preparation
  •  Handling both positive and negative parole suitability factors
  •  Dealing with Board-appointed Psychologists (and knowing when to hire your own)
  •  Building a Strong Administrative Record
  •  Obtaining Habeas Relief in State Court
  •  Supporting Your Loved Ones Through this Difficult and Emotional Process

Expected presenters include:

  •  Former Life Prisoners who are now succeeding on parole and beyond
  •  The Executive Officer and Chief Counsel for the Board of Parole Hearings
  •  Judges regularly presiding over Lifer habeas corpus proceedings
  •  A Psychologist skilled in preparing and evaluating Lifers for parole consideration
