Law School Professionals Series: Public Defender Corps Program Overview
- Starts: 2:00 pm on Tuesday, March 27, 2012
- Ends: 3:30 pm on Tuesday, March 27, 2012
In 2011, Equal Justice Works and the Southern Public Defender Training Center launched Public Defender Corps (PDC), a three-year fellowship program which provides intensive training and mentoring to new attorneys with the goal of supporting the public defender community and raising the standard of representation across the country. With only a few slots available each year, the program is extremely competitive, but those who are accepted will receive the training of a lifetime. In this webinar you will learn how the initiative works and what you can do to help students interested in careers in public defense to best position themselves for the program. This presentation is intended for law school professionals and clinical professors. There will be another presentation in early summer on what makes a good PDC application for students and recent graduates.
