On Saturday, August 3, 2013 the Public Defender Service for the District of Columbia and the UC Berkeley School of Law will co-host the fourth Public Defender Advocacy, Training & Hiring (PATH) Conference. PATH is designed for law students and recent graduates who are interested in learning more about careers in indigent criminal defense representation.

Beginning with an opening plenary, the day includes four concurrent tracks for you to choose from, taught by public defenders from throughout the country. Additionally, the “Lunch with the Defenders” offers you an opportunity to sit in small groups and discuss with talented and committed advocates how their offices hire, what types of candidates they seek and other information to help you plan your careers.

Online registration is now available.
