Program Summary

“Toxicology Pearls for Attorneys” will give a broad overview of what attorneys need to know about the effects of alcohol as well as common street and prescription drugs on the body, interpreting drug screens, how alcohol absorption can be delayed or increased, and the connection between drug levels and impairment. There is so much to know about the science behind drug and alcohol-related impairment, but this one-hour program will establish useful basic principles.
