On Friday May 3, 2012 Barton Morris, as part of the Michigan Association of OWI Attorneys (MIAOWIA) Faculty participated in the Trial Skills Course on the second day of the Genessee County Bar Association Criminal Law Seminar. The event was held at the Riverfront Banquet Center in downtown Flint, Michigan. The MIAOWIA panel of attorneys included East Lansing OWI attorney Michael Nichols, Associate Professor Dr. Andreas Stolz of Michigan State University, Grand Rapids OWI attorney Jeffrey Crampton, and OWI Bakersfield California attorney Jeremy Brehmer, along with Royal Oak OWI attorney Barton Morris. The day began with a presentation from Nichols and Dr. Stolz on challenging the procedures of the Michigan State Police Forensic Science Division for drugs and alcohol. Next attorney Crampton presented about jury selection and closing arguments on drug and alcohol related driving defenses. Brehmer and Barton Morris along with the rest of the panel then performed a trial skills workshop where cross and direct examination demonstrations were given by Barton Morris and followed by working with the Genessee County attorneys and honing their skills.
Barton Morris was honored to be a part of such a great panel and seminar. It was a learning experience as much, if not more than it was as a teaching experience. Key professional relationships and OWI litigation skills were definitely strengthened. I look forward to have the opportunity to do it again. Thank you Genesee County Bar Association and the Michigan Association of OWI Attorneys.
