Florida Law Update 2015 featured as a seminar at The Florida Bar’s 2015 Annual Convention. After the seminar, Legal Talk Network producer Laurence Colletti sat down with some of the presenters to discuss what’s new in Florida Law. In the first part of this podcast, Laurence interviews Denis deVlaming about criminal law from district courts, the Florida Supreme Court, and the US Supreme Court in the past 12 months.
