New Leadership

A blended level of NDLI’s training programs is New Leadership. This program is designed for those who have some experience in the basic management skills necessary to any defender program and are seeking to enhance those skills while beginning to develop broader leadership in the political and criminal justice arenas that surround defender programs.

With a balanced emphasis on both internal management skills and external leadership roles, this program is well-suited for: administrators of assigned/appointed counsel systems; new board members in public defense systems; and mid-level managers of public defender offices.

Programs are typically 3 days combining facilitated workshops addressing a current critical incident brought by each participant with interactive educational sessions and skills-training on selected topics.
