Melanie McCulley Yenovkian
Simpsonville, SC
The Fourth Amendment, and its accompanying case law, is one of the most complex and malleable areas of the law. Which law applies? Was it a search? Was the arrest valid? Does an exception apply? Is the evidence admissible or tainted? These are just a few of the many questions that arise when addressing search and seizure cases.
Former Thirteenth Circuit Assistant Solicitor Melanie Yenovkian will provide you with unerring guidance on the state of Fourth Amendment law, give practical advice to the criminal law practitioner on searches, seizures, arrests, and evidence, and bring all of this complex material together in an easy-to-understand format.
If you represent criminal defendants or serve as a prosecutor in South Carolina, this is a must seminar for you. Each registrant will get a copy of Melanie’s brand new Second Edition of The Fourth Amendment: A Step-by-Step Guide to Search and Seizure Jurisprudence in South Carolina.
February 26
