Odds are that you became a supervisor of others because you were an excellent trial attorney.  Yet helping other attorneys to achieve the best outcomes for their clients requires different and additional skills -- skills you were not taught in law school.  And, as you move into management levels in your public defense system, you are called on to engage with the public, administrators, and other criminal justice stakeholders in seeking the overall improvement of our criminal justice systems.  This requires using different abilities, those of negotiation and compromise, in contrast to advocacy.  This program offers a unique opportunity for defender leaders to step away from their offices, learn these skills, and apply them to their individual management challenges in a supportive learning environment.  Our expert faculty will help each participant translate advocacy skills into effective management techniques.
