NAPD - "We the Defenders" - Investigator, Paralegals and Core Staff Conferences


Time: September 28, 2020
Location: Indianapolis, IN

WHO SHOULD ATTEND? Anyone who works in a public defender office who isn’t a lawyer. There’s a LOT of crossover and blurred lines when it comes to job functions for non-lawyer staff, regardless of the size of the public defender office. Because this training is incorporated into WE THE DEFENDERS, attendees will be able to design their own experience by attending the sessions that fit their job functions.

These conferences will feature nationally recognized faculty in a mix of plenary sessions, simultaneous sessions and small group breakouts.  Participants will have the opportunity to choose sessions to best fit their individual needs.  There will also be networking opportunities to create relationships to sustain the support provided during the live event.

New this conference - sessions geared for paralegals and core public defense staff (administrators, secretaries, etc)

Initially launching as an integrated training with targeted breakouts, the Paralegal and Core Staff tracks will focus on skills such as client interaction, de-escalation, influence, technology, organization, and innovation.
