We are excited to announce that the 2018 Defender Trial School, cosponsored by the School of Government and the North Carolina Office of Indigent Defense Services, will be held Monday, July 9 through Friday, July 13, 2018, at the School of Government on the UNC-Chapel Hill campus. Defender Trial School participants will use their own cases to develop a cohesive theory of defense at trial and apply that theory through all stages of trial, including voir dire, opening and closing arguments, and direct and cross-examination. The program will offer approximately 30 hours of general CLE credit and qualifies for NC State Bar criminal law specialization credit.

The Defender Trial School is open to public defenders and a limited number of private attorneys who perform a significant amount of appointed work. The agenda will be posted to the course page soon, and we will send out an announcement as soon as registration opens. Until then, please save the dates if you’re interested in attending!
