Hello, all! It’s been a slightly shorter week and we are still short on general news, but below we have just a couple of things to share with the juvenile defense community.
The Office of Indigent Defense Services (IDS) has recently added a new section called “Voices of Public Defense”. This new section will feature IDS’ public defense materials. The current content includes a series of segments from a presentation by Christine Mumma about the importance of public defense in protecting the innocent and the IDS Commission’s “Committed to Fairness” video. Feel free to check out the new section here.
On Nov. 16, the UNC School of Government will be hosting a Back to School CLE from 8:45 a.m. to 5 p.m. The training offers 6.25 hours of CLE credit, including an hour of ethics and an optional hour of substance abuse credit. Topics will include civil and criminal case law and legislative updates, the opioid epidemic, and a review and preview of the U.S. Supreme Court. Registration will be $300. Lunch will be provided. To register please visit the UNC SOG site here.
This wraps up another light news week. As more public events and other opportunities arise, we will be sure to share. In the meantime, feel free to contact our office by phone or email, and check out our Facebook and Twitter pages for other useful articles/insights!
