About This Course

In this fascinating CLE, Mr. Hanlon will discuss his decade-long effort to enforce Rules of Professional Responsibility that are in effect throughout the nation for public defenders in the state courts, as well as pending federal legislation that would provide $1.25 billion over a five-year period to fund state and local public defense systems, conditioned upon substantial criminal justice system reform.

Included in this presentation will be an analysis of the principles of qualitative analytics used in modern public defender workload studies, as well as what he has learned in litigating to enforce the results of those studies in Missouri and Louisiana; and a plan to use those studies, and others, to replace the 1973 NAC standards with reliable, data-based and standards-based national numerical caseload maximums that will serve as the basis for $1.25 billion in federal funding over five years to fund the unfunded judicial mandate of Gideon v Wainwright.
