NDLI Nuts and Bolts of Leadership and Management

Outstanding trial skills don’t automatically translate into outstanding managerial skills. A good trial lawyer can, however, learn skills to use in supervising colleagues and managing staff. The Nuts & Bolts training seminar, one part of the National Defender Leadership Institute, offers a unique opportunity for defender leaders to step away from their offices, learn these skills and apply them to their individual management challenges in a supportive learning environment. This June in South Carolina, our expert faculty will help each participant translate advocacy skills into effective management techniques.

Basic Data Every Defender Program Needs to Track: A Toolkit for Defender Leaders

The Basic Data toolkit, released late in 2014, highlights the importance of data collection for defender offices.  It identifies key information for defender leaders to collect, tips on how to compile that material, and guidance on using it for self-evaluation and advocacy. Ultimately, better use of data can make defender programs stronger advocates for their clients.

The toolkit is targeted to managers of all types of indigent defense programs, including public defender offices, assigned counsel programs, and contract counsel programs. It recognizes that, because of the wide variety in size, resources and administrative capacity among defender organizations, there is no “one size fits all” strategy. Instead, the toolkit provides a range of strategies and options that offices can match to their situations.
