Representing Your Office in the Outside World

December 20, 2019, 1:00 p.m. Eastern, 90 minutes

Webinar Faculty:  John Stuart

About the Webinar:   This webinar supports a Chief Public Defender developing herself as the face of her office, and a voice for the voiceless in the criminal justice system.  The webinar provides strategies for dealing with the bar, with other justice system leaders, with funders, and with the public.  These strategies are illustrated with examples which lead to concrete things you can do, wherever you are, to help your office get the respect and resources it deserves.

About the Faculty:  John Stuart was a trial lawyer in the Minneapolis public defender’s office for twelve years, and then Minnesota State Public Defender for 24 years.  He supervised a statewide system that had 700 employees and served 150,000 clients a year.  John has taught public defender leadership in 15 states, and in Eastern Europe.  He is retired now, married to a poet, growing heirloom tomatoes.
