NCJA and the Bureau of Justice Assistance for the next webinar in our monthly series: Innovations in Public Defense: Using a Multidisciplinary Approach to Improve Justice System Outcomes on November 30, 3-4 p.m. Eastern.
Innovations in Public Defense: Using a Multidisciplinary Approach to Improve Justice System Outcomes will focus on two public defender offices who are using innovative programs to improve public safety and client outcomes. These two programs have incorporated a multi-disciplinary approach to public defense which enhances the types of services offered, helps judges make more informed decisions and prevents increased justice system expenditures.
Presenters for this webinar are Robin Steinberg, executive director of the Bronx Defenders and Edward Monahan, commissioner of the KY Department of Public Advocacy.
Also, the PowerPoint slides and the webcast from our most recent webinar, Using Evidence Informed Principles in Juvenile Justice: Lowering Recidivism, Reducing Secure Detention and Promoting Positive Youth Development are available on the NCJA website at www.ncja.org/webinars.
