    Are you looking to get some trial experience? This webinar will feature three prominent area organizations that offer training and pro bono opportunities for criminal defense work in D.C. These organizations, because of their training components, are perfect for our young attorneys seeking trial experience under some senior guidance, as well as any attorneys seeking to pay it forward. 

    The three organizations include:

    • The Second Look Project (SLP)
    • Rising for Justice (RFJ)
    • National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL)

    Pre-registration for this program is required. D.C. Bar membership is not required to attend. Non-members will need to create a profile to register and access the content.  This program is free for GWAC members.
