NADT - Appellate Defender Training

Time: January 25-28, 2018
Location: New Orleans, LA

The 2018 training takes place in New Orleans! The National Appellate Defender Training (ADT) offers an intensive, four-day learning experience designed specifically for attorneys who represent indigent defendants in criminal and delinquency appeals in the state and federal court systems. The National Juvenile Defender Center joins as sponsor for a Juvenile Skills Writing Track, where defenders who work on cases involving juveniles can improve their advocacy skills. This national skills training brings together court and appellate public defenders at the state and federal levels, assigned counsel, contract defenders, and Criminal Justice Act private attorneys for a multi-day program. ADT uses a "learning-by-doing" teaching methodology: participants will bring their own case files to work on during the program, and they will be asked to apply to their case the practice methods presented through ADT plenary presentations and materials.
