  • Executive coaching.
  • Best practice scenarios.
  • Time management training.
  • Role playing & replicating exercises.
  • Bonding social activities.

We also offer a Leadership Program and Leadership Summit Conference specifically designed to assist chief public defender, deputy directors and other senior public defender office staff resolve challenges their lawyers encounter using the values-based Gideon’s Promise curriculum and share strategies for improving the delivery of public defense services in their areas.
