Deborah T. Creek Criminal Practice Institute: Summer, Fall, and Winter Series

PDS has launched the Deborah T. Creek Criminal Practice Institute: Summer and Fall Series. PDS offers this free training to members of the Criminal Justice Act (CJA) panel.  The Series contains sessions on numerous different criminal defense areas, including trial skills, immigrant defense, collateral civil consequences, sentencing, ethics, parole matters, and hot issues in class action litigation.

The Series is open to panel attorneys and other interested pro bono attorneys practicing criminal law in the District of Columbia, and registration is available on a first-come, first-served basis. The summer program is generally posted by early May and the fall program in early August.  Most courses qualify for CLE credit in other jurisdictions.
