National Symposium on Indigent Defense: Looking Back, Looking Forward, 2000-2010

In 1999, DOJ convened the National Symposium on Indigent Defense, bringing stakeholders together to build partnerships and collaborations that would enhance representation of indigent criminal defendants.

For the National Symposium on Indigent Defense: Looking Back, Looking Forward, 2000-2010, DOJ brought officers of the court, legislators and advocates together to assess how far the country had come since the 1999 symposium and identify critical areas for improvement.
