Eastern Washington CLE to focus on Indigent Defense

On January 28, 2010, the Washington Supreme Court issued State v. A.N.J., a sweeping opinion articulating ineffective assistance of counsel elements for public defense cases. The Washington State Office of Public Defense (OPD) invites public defense lawyers to attend this no-cost CLE and learn more about this topic from our fabulous line-up of speakers. Seven CLE credits including ethics are pending approval. Register at:

Speakers Include Professor Robert Boruchowitz on caseload management, George Yeannakis on client communication,
Travis Stearns on direct and collateral consequences, presentations on Grant County and Director Joanne Moore from Washington State Office of Public Defense on looking forward in indigent defense.

The CLE is in Spokane April 2, 2010 at the Gonzaga University School of Law. It will also be held in Olympia and Wenatchee.
