Annual Conference

Every Spring, the DPA offers a conference for all attorneys, investigators, social workers, mitigation specialists, contract public defenders and members of the private defense bar. The conference offers a mix of simultaneous and plenary sessions usually totaling well over 40 choices of sessions. Sessions are tailored to meet the various needs of the different areas and job types within the DPA. The conference is usually held in conjunction with the Kentucky Bar Association Seminar and DPA attorneys are able to attend part of the KBA seminar. Videos and materials from past annual conferences are available on The Trumpet, the DPA's private Internet resource for public defenders and other DPA employees.
