Join CJAN & PDSCLS for a panel featuring attorneys in local, federal, and appellate public defense work. Our panelists will discuss the work they do, the reasons they pursued public defense, their experience in the field, their favorite and least favorite aspects of the work, and student opportunities in the various offices. Non-pizza lunch will be served.
Trial attorneys are often the lawyers who spend the most time developing the factual record, investigating, exploring mitigation strategies, and litigating legal issues in a high-stress and time-sensitive environment. Join us for a conversation with three seasoned capital trial attorneys, including the former Executive Director of New York’s Capital Defender Office.
This event is co-sponsored by The Public Defender Students of Columbia Law School, Windows on Death Row, and Social Justice Initiatives.
Light refreshments will be served
