NAPD - We the Defenders (for all but the social work track)


Time: August 12-15, 2024
Location: Detroit, MI

“We the Defenders” is the essential conference for public defense investigators, mitigation specialists, social workers, paralegals, and other core staff - all roles except attorneys – who play a critical role in defense-based work. Development opportunities, networking, collaboration, and sustainability are woven into the various workshops, small groups, plenaries, and sessions at "We the Defenders."

This is a celebration of the diversity, skill, and dedication that you bring to the public defense community and an acknowledgment that every member of the team is vital. We hope to see you in Detroit!
