ETHICAL Challenges in the ADJUDICATION of Defendants with MENTAL ILLNESS
An ETHICS and EATS Seminar
Wednesday, AUGUST 22
8:30 - 11 a.m.
Africa Room, Duquesne Union
and ONLINE via LIVE videostream
If the rule of law exists to protect the rights and dignity of the individual, who could be worthier of its safekeeping than those suffering from mental illness? And yet, whether seeking competent representation, appropriate incarceration facilities or the expungement of records, defendants with diminished mental capacity often find themselves at the mercy of a system that is indifferent at best, and unethical at worst.
If you are an attorney, social worker or other professional involved in the adjudication of defendants with mental illness, please join psychiatrist Burt Singerman, ethicist Lyndsie Ferrara, public defender Chuck Van Keuren, and social service provider Stacy Condie for this special breakfast seminar examining various ethical challenges and best practices for meeting them.
