Criminal Defense Training Academy (OPD)
Please consider applying to attend OPD’s Criminal Defense Training Academy being held on September 26-27  and October 23-25. Both segments will be conducted in-person this year at Central Washington University. The CDTA is an intensive trial skills training program that focuses on many aspects of trial practice (i.e., client communication, voir dire, opening statements, cross-examination, preserving the record for appeal, etc.) OPD encourages anyone interested to apply, and preference will be given to less experienced public defenders from areas with limited local CLE opportunities.

The application is located here. The application window will close on July 12, and space is limited. Note: this training is not sponsored by WDA, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact Geoffrey Hulsey or Sarah Lawson for more information.
