The Signature of Excellence in criminal defense. Over 30 years defending the most serious cases, in State and Federal Court. Over 150 jury trials. Over 200 homicide cases.
Samuel Delgado has been teaching students and lawyers how to win criminal trials ever since he graduated from Georgetown Law. He earned an L.L.M. in trial advocacy through the prestigious E. Barret Prettyman Fellowship in 1985. From that point on, he has taught trial advocacy at several law schools, including Harvard, Yale, and Georgetown.
Samuel is an internationally acclaimed teacher in the art of criminal trial advocacy. He has taught at Harvard's renowned Trial Advocacy Workshop for the past 12 consecutive years.
Fluent in Spanish, Samuel now teaches regularly throughout Latin America. He is on the forefront of reforms in Mexico, Venezuela, Colombia, and many other countries that are undergoing total reform of their criminal justice systems. Samuel is proud to share this momentous time in history, as these countries transition from their continental law systems, based on the Roman civil law tradition, to the oral advocacy system that we have in the United States.
