Public Defense Improvement Program 

2017 Regional CLEs

OPD is once again hosting a series of public defense regional CLEs. Each event will include classroom-style instruction coupled with guided tours of Department of Corrections prison facilities. Public defense practitioners may register for the class, the tour, or both.

Everyone registering for a prison tour will be required to provide the following information for security pre-screening: full name, birthdate, gender, and last four digits of social security number. On the day of the tour all participants will be required to sign a DOC consent-to-search form. Space is limited, and registration must be completed by the indicated deadlines. Click on the registration links below for more details about each session. CLE credits for the tours and trainings are pending approval by the WSBA.
