The Wisconsin Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers is proud to announce a comprehensive online criminal defense training program: Defending the Accused: The Fundamentals of Criminal Defense. Every criminal defense practitioner can benefit from this cutting-edge program which is the first of its kind.  It is intended as a comprehensive guide for new attorneys on how to handle a variety of issues we may run into on a daily basis with clients and as a refresher for experienced attorneys.

 

Registration is restricted to criminal defense lawyers. Judges, full and part-time prosecutors, law students, and members of the general public may not register.

 

 You can choose to either watch "live" as the individual sessions occur over Zoom or on video replay at a time of your choosing.  Each new session will be available every Friday at noon from January 15th to May 21st (excluding April 2, Good Friday).  Each session will be available on-demand via video on the WACDL website until one year after it has been presented live. We anticipate receiving over 30 CLE credits for the program and written materials will be available for each session via the website.
