LAST CHANCE: OSAD Online Training Course for Pro Bono Criminal Appeals Program (11.25 Hours CLE, 1 Hour Professional Responsibility)

September 17, 2020 7:31 AM | Carson Griffis (Administrator)

From September 21 to October 23, 2020, the Office of the State Appellate Defender is presenting a free, five-week online training course for attorneys who want to participate in the Illinois Supreme Court's pro bono criminal appeals program.  The course will walk participants through a criminal trial in Illinois to assist them in spotting issues to raise on appeal, familiarize participants with relevant Supreme and Appellate Court rules, advise them about client relations, and more.  Completing the course will qualify you to participate in the pro bono program.

The course schedule is flexible.  OSAD will release videos and supplemental materials once a week for five weeks.  Participants can review the weekly materials at their own convenience, and OSAD will hold "office hours" (via phone, email or Zoom) twice a week for participants to raise questions.  A detailed curriculum may be found here.

To register, email probono@osad.state.il.us.  Registration closes tomorrow, September 18.
