This presentation focuses on how to challenge the admissibility of your client's statements to police.  It will cover the techniques used by police to interrogate suspects, how police attempt to undermine Miranda,  how to challenge a statement as involuntary and other legal challenges to the admissibility of a confession.   There will be a discussion of the types of psychological testing and expert witnesses which can be called as well as what chapters for cross examination are most effective to show that police did not comply with the dictates of Miranda or used psychologically coercive techniques to extract a confession from your client.
