The Defender Services Office Training Division announced its calendar of 45 authorized training events and conferences for fiscal year 2019. We have two (2) new programs this year. In addition to our one-week Trial Skills Academy (TSA), this year we are offering two (2) additional 2.5-day workshops, titled Trial Skills Workshops (TSW), which will focus on skills that can be used in pre-trial, trials, motions, and sentencings.
Our training events are carefully designed to further the right to effective assistance of counsel provided by federal defenders and private Criminal Justice Act practitioners. Whether you're new to federal practice or a seasoned practitioner, Training Division programs will give you the tools, skills, and strategies to effectively represent your clients.
