Thursday, July 22, 2021 12:00 pm to Saturday, July 24, 2021 3:00 pm

PLEASE NOTE: We have changed the dates for this program. It will run from Thursday, July 22, starting at 12:00 noon, and end on Saturday, July 24, at 3:00 p.m.

Presented by the NLADA & the National Alliance of Sentencing Advocates and Mitigation Specialists (NASAMS), intensive training is offered to beginners and experienced professionals who want to refresh their mitigation skills. Over the course of three afternoons, we will provide a best practices framework for mitigation and sentencing advocacy work during COVID and in the approaching more “normal” times as well. We will cover the history and development of the profession and highlight standards of practice and ethics. Specific skill sets will be addressed, including investigation, records collection, interviewing, writing, and story-telling. An exploration of race, ethnicity, and cultural issues will provide a wider lens for understanding and sharing the client's unique story.

The program provides training for participants from nationally recognized experts in the field. The small class size will ensure quality instruction, coaching, and hands-on learning. Participants will receive sample materials, organizational tools, sample reports, scholarly articles, and e-tools to assist their practices.

All times are Eastern Time.
