Capital Case Organization and Team Communication

July 31, 2018, 12:00 p.m. Eastern, 60 minutes

Webinar Faculty:  Anna Louise Jeno, Litigation Technology Specialist, Capital Resource Counsel Project

About the Webinar: This webinar will discuss how to organize and coordinate a Federal Capital case as a way to understand fundamental principles and concepts necessary for any document-heavy criminal case with a large team. This webinar is appropriate for any team-member facing the daunting task of coordinating a large case, but will be discussed through the lens of the specific needs of a capital criminal defense team.

About the Faculty: Anna Louise Jeno joined the Capital Resource Counsel Project in May of 2015. In her role as CRCP Paralegal, Anna provides support to teams requesting assistance with logistics, team coordination and technology support. Anna brought her experience as a commercial litigation firm's technology specialist, which included technology support, structural organization support, and document review on large regulatory investigations, litigation, and private-sector commercial litigation. Prior to that foray into civil litigation, she clerked in Multnomah County Circuit Court of the State of Oregon, and helped develop protocols for that County's first mental health court. Her educational background includes a J.D. from Lewis and Clark Law School (2007), M.A. in Public Policy and Women's Studies from The George Washington University (1998), and B.A. in English, minor in Black Studies and Communications from The Ohio State University (1995).
