Federal Rules of Evidence
CJA Panel Training
Wednesday, February 15, 2023


The Criminal Justice Act (“CJA”) provides for the appointment of counsel in criminal cases to persons who are financially unable to obtain adequate representation. 18 U.S.C. § 3006A(a). In the Southern District of Texas, in cases where the Federal Public Defender has not been appointed to represent a defendant who is entitled to the assistance of appointed counsel, individual defense attorneys are chosen from a federal panel. The Federal Public Defender is charged with assuring that members of the CJA panel are familiar with federal criminal practice.


Understanding the Federal Rules of Evidence, what they say, what they mean, how to use them, is essential for any litigator. This session will review the evidentiary rules pertaining to criminal practice, including how they interact with a defendant’s constitutional rights.
