Week in Review: Aug 24-28
Happy Friday and the last weekend of August! Only 4 more months left in the year, how will you make them great?
TIP OF THE WEEK
Defenders – you have a statutory right to discovery in all of your juvenile cases (§7B-2300-2303). Don’t be afraid to use it! Some jurisdictions provide it without a motion, but it’s never bad practice to file your motion regardless. You can find a sample discovery motion and order here on our website.
Friday September 25, 2020, 2:30-3:30 PM OJD is hosting “Defend Children From ICE.” Presented by Helen Parsonage, Board Certified Immigration Specialist and FREE to the first 35 DEFENDERS who register. Discussing the topic of children and immigration, strategies in your defense and other great information, you DON’T want to miss this training. Who could turn down free learning? Register here. PLEASE PUT YOUR BAR NUMBER IN THE JOB FIELD BOX.
