Rosa Peralta, TeamChild’s Model For Change Program Coordinator, has done extensive work on how to improve the way that defense attorneys communicate with their clients and with the court. Join Rosa as she discusses her work and what attorneys can do help their clients, especially those from different racial or cultural backgrounds, understand what is happening in the courtroom. The data that Rosa has collected should be applicable to all attorneys, whether you practice in juvenile, adult or civil court.
This program is part of a series of forums surrounding the issues underlying the way that Washington prosecutes and defends persons of color and the indigent. On the second Wednesday of every month at noon, WDA will co-sponsor a one hour brown bag ethics CLE on what public defenders can do in their everyday practice to improve criminal justice. We will discuss an important issue in criminal justice and viable solutions we can put to use in our practice. These forums are being made possible by a donation of space by the Center for Children and Youth Justice, located at 615 Second Ave., Suite 275 Seattle, WA 98104.
1.0 Ethics credits. This program is open to all WDA members. To register, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the title of the program in the subject line.
