2024 Defender Trial School

July 8 - July 12

We are excited to announce that the 2024 Defender Trial School, cosponsored by the School of Government and the North Carolina Office of Indigent Defense Services, will be held Monday, July 8 through Friday, July 12 at the School of Government.

Participants will use their own cases to develop a cohesive theory of defense at trial and apply that theory through all stages of a trial, including voir dire, opening and closing arguments, and direct and cross-examination.


The Defender Trial School is open to public defenders and, space permitting, private attorneys who perform a significant amount of appointed work.


The agenda will be posted on the course page soon, and we will send out an announcement in the next few weeks, which is when registration will be available. At that time, you will also be able to go to the course page and click on the link to sign up to receive notices. Until then, please save the dates if you are interested in attending!                                                                                                                                                                             


The program will offer approximately 29 hours of general CLE credit , including one hour of ethics credit, and qualifies for NC State Bar criminal law specialization credit.CONTACT
