Hot Topics at the Traffic Violations Bureau

*THIS COURSE HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL THE FALL.*

Faculty:

Hon. Ann Lundin

Sponsor:
BBA Young Lawyer Section

Description:
The unique rules of the New York City’s Traffic Violations Bureau make it a somewhat difficult arena for fighting traffic tickets as opposed to other traffic courts in New York State. Mostimportant, there are no plea bargains at the Traffic Violations Bureau. All summonses that have been pleaded Not Guilty must be adjudicated. This course is designed to help lawyers represent clients who retain them for traffic court tickets. The course may include speakers such as an Administrative Law Judge and a Police Officer. We will also discuss frequently issued tickets, such as speeding, improper use of cell phone / portable electronics, and failure to yield to pedestrians. The statutory and factual elements of these charges will be reviewed.
