49th CPI Conference

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

PDS has launched the Deborah T. Creek Criminal Practice Institute: Spring, 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. Most courses qualify for CLE credit in other jurisdictions.

Due to the coronavirus, PDS is postponing all external and internal training until further notice, including the CPI March training program. PDS will be exploring alternative modes for future trainings in the event we are still responding to public health concerns brought on by the coronavirus. We regret having to cancel this program at short notice.
