Defender Innovation Projects

Defenders across the state are involved in a variety of  innovative projects aimed at improving client representation. Defenders are also working to enhance systems that help our clients while changing those that cause harm. Public defender led efforts have the ability to positively impact a wide array of  challenges related to public defense. Defender innovations can also improve prosecutor, law enforcement and court practices. Projects may also result in improved access to therapeutic and preventive services for our communities.

If you are working on a particular project that you would like to let other defenders know about, please fill out the form here.  We hope that you will reach out to the offices and individuals listed below to learn more about their projects and explore possibilities for collaboration.
