Click here to register for the Social Worker/Sentencing Advocates Conference held at the same time and location.  

These conferences will feature nationally recognized faculty in a mix of plenary sessions, simultaneous sessions and small group breakouts.  Participants will have the opportunity to choose sessions to best fit their individual needs.  There will also be networking opportunities to create relationships to sustain the support provided during the live event. 
Co-hosted by the Washington Defender Association, the Innocence Project Northwest and the University of Washington School of Law. 

Attorneys are also welcome to attend.  Attorneys are welcome to join the sentencing advocacy track as well.  We just ask that you stick with the small groups if you do that track.   We will be applying for CLE in Washington.
