The National Appellate Defender Training is the only national training that offers a rigorous, four-day learning experience designed specifically for attorneys who represent indigent defendants in criminal and delinquency appeals in the state and federal court systems.

This exceptional four-day skills based learning experience is designed specifically for local, state and federal public defenders, assigned counsel, contract defenders, and private counsel Criminal Justice Act attorneys. The focus of the conference is on small-group workshops, in which participants work on their own real cases with experienced defense teachers and litigators.
