Last year we made history, when over 800 women gathered to celebrate our roles in public defense. Our voices were heard across the nation. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for! Join us this year for our 2nd annual Women in Public Defense Virtual Training and Celebration.
See the schedule from the 2020 Conference.

Dates: Thursday, September 23-Saturday, September 25, 2021

This September, we once again gather for advocacy, encouragement, empowerment, training workshops, development, networking, and renewal. 

This September, we gather for community. We gather to support.

This powerful conference is filled with workshops, self-care events, networking, celebration and much, much more. We will acquire knowledge, obtain resources, and make connections that will elevate you to reach your professional and personal goals.

This September, we gather for sisterhood.

This gathering is for all female/feminine-identifying individuals, in all job titles, and practitioners who work or support public defense: attorneys, paralegals, core staff, social workers, trainers, policy advocates, and more. We also encourage and invite law students to join us. NAPD is committed to creating an event in a safe space that brings inspiration and transformation to persons of all gender identities, and for this event, we will specifically amplify female-identifying voices in public defense*. 

New focus areas this year: 

  • Professional Growth & Leadership - sessions that help participants develop their leadership voice or facilitating professional/personal growth

  • Well-Being and Self-Care - sessions that prioritize wellness and self care within the public defense community

  • Representing Women, Families, Children - sessions that center around the circumstances, challenges, and celebrations of representing women, families and children

  • Intersectionality and Connecting Our Stories - sessions amplifying when our voices are marginalized in the communities we serve 

  • Women and Racial Justice - sessions centering around the pursuit of racial justice and equality

July 15th-September 1st - $75

After September 1st - $100


NAPD doesn't apply for CLE or track attendance to provide certifications for our live webinars, conferences and online courses. This helps us keep the price as low as possible and avoids the disruption of the flow of the training required by many states to verify attendance.
We are able to provide CLE for dozens of recorded sessions from previous training for NAPD members in most states.   These sessions are only $10 per credit hour.   For more details, log in with your NAPD credentials at this link.     

CEU: This program is Approved by the National Association of Social Workers (Approval # 886791803-6016) for 8 continuing education contact hours.

Select sessions will be eligible for these CEU credit hours. We have made these sessions searchable by subject "CE Session."
