HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OJD'S FEARLESS LEADER AND YOUR STATE JUVENILE DEFENDER, ERIC ZOGRY!
Technically his birthday was yesterday but we couldn't resist another shoutout in the blog. Eric, thank you for championing juvenile justice in North Carolina and all the hard work you've done over the years to ensure change.
No tip of the week this week but we do have two very important announcements to make so let's get to it!
School's In: Refreshers on Suppression, Threats, and Clients in the News will take place, Friday, November 5 at 12:00 PM. This will be a 75 minute CLE course discussing strategy, handling your client and family if their name is in the news as well as the recent string of threats made against North Carolina schools. Please feel free to grab your lunch, a midday coffee and snack, or just join in on a relevant and timely CLE offered by OJD. Click here to register.
