Mitigation created by a team of professionals in non capital case is increasingly becoming the standard of practice. This bring-your-own-case institute is designed for defense teams to work on the mitigation ifor a non-capital client. The institute is a mix of presentations followed up by small group work facilitated experienced faculty. Participants are encouraged to come with their defense team (attorneys, investigators, paralegals, social workers, mitigation specialists and other sentencing advocates). Sole team members are welcome, if you are unable to bring others on your client’s case.
Topics featured at the institute include
- Creating the Mitigation Story
- Organizing the defense team
- Mental Illness and Chemical Dependency
- Intersectionality and the Use of Self
- Mapping techniques to turn data into advocacy
Small groups will be assigned so that you will work with teams with similar cases. Some may have clients with a realistic chance or diversion, others may be working toward lowering the terms of years.
Groups will also be specific to the characteristics of the clients (i.e juvenile or mental illness).
