North Shore Community College invites the public to its annual free Law Day Lecture Thursday, April 28, 7:30 – 9 a.m. The lecture will be held at the Lynn Campus gym, 300 Broad Street and will be teleconferenced to the Danvers Campus, One Ferncroft Road, Math & Sciences building, room DS119.
This year’s Law Day theme is Miranda: More Than Just Words in recognition of 2016 marking the 50th anniversary of the well-known U.S. Supreme Court Case Miranda v. Arizona.
Keynote speaker J.W. Carney, Jr. is a criminal defense attorney who has handled thousands of cases over his career in Massachusetts District, Superior and Federal Courts, and his numerous professional distinctions include peer recognition as one of The Top 100 Lawyers in Massachusetts and Boston magazine’s identification as one of The Five Best Private Criminal Defense Attorneys in the state.
Carney has handled many high profile cases including the first trial presented in its entirety in New England on cable TV. He has been asked by the courts to represent defendants in some of the most challenging criminal cases, including James “Whitey” Bulger, Tarek Mehanna (a terrorism case) and John Salvi (the murders at Brookline abortion clinics).
