Week in Review: Feb 28-March 4

Happy Friday and welcome back to your Week in Review. This week some exciting things have happened at OJD and we can't wait to tell you about it very soon. Thank you to everyone who requested copies of the Juvenile Codes! We successfully sent out 39 2019 and 2020 codes to our defenders, making space for 2021 and clearing up room in our conference area :D. Let's get this blog started with a message from Timothy Heinle at the School of Government and a job opportunity!

The 2022 Intensive Juvenile Defender Training, co-sponsored by the School of Government and the Office of Indigent Defense Services, will be held virtually on March 10-11, 2022. The training will offer approximately 10 hours of CLE credit, which includes one hour of mental health and one hour of ethics credit (pending Bar approval). The draft agenda is attached and a final agenda is forthcoming.

PARTICIPANTS: The program is open to public defenders and private attorneys who represent juveniles in delinquency proceedings or attorneys who want to practice in this area.

TIMES: Check-in will be on Thursday, March 10, 2022, at 8:50 a.m. The program will begin at 9:00 am. The program ends on Friday, March 11, 2022, at 3:45 pm.
