10th Annual Conference on Public Defense

8:00 a.m.  -  5:15 p.m.

FEBRUARY 28, 2020 | 1.0 ETHICS CLE CREDIT, 1.0 LAW AND LEGAL CLE CREDIT

In the past two years, there has been a great deal of mainstream discussion of the repressed history of racial oppression in the United States. Jeff Robinson’s "Who We Are," Bryan Stevenson’s Equal Justice Initiative Museum and Memorial, and the New York Times "1619 Project" are among the key examples. This conference aims to help defenders understand and incorporate that history into more effective representation of their clients. The discussion sessions will cover the spectrum of representation, from bail to trial to sentencing, with an emphasis on what defenders can do immediately to make a difference for their clients.
