We have an important update regarding the free virtual training on Bail Advocacy schedule for Thursday, October 22 from 1:30-4:00 p.m. When we originally emailed you the invitation, we asked that you register via a Zoom link. However, since that time the Ohio State Bar Association (OSBA) has graciously agreed to allow us to use their technological platform to provide this training. We apologize for the inconvenience, but are certain providing the training via OSBA will result in a more smooth process than via Zoom. If you have already registered and received a link to participate via Zoom, please disregard that email.
Anyone interested in attending this training should please use the following link to access the training next week: https://onlinexperiences.com/Launch/Event/ShowKey=119266. There is no need to register ahead of time and you will not receive another link. To ensure you get CLE credit, please review the live Stream viewing instructions attached to this email.
The agenda for the training is as follows:
I. Brief Opening Remarks & Introductions – Elizabeth Miller, Office of the Ohio Public Defender
II. Bail and the Federal Constitution (60 minutes) - Alec Karakatsanis, Civil Rights Corps
III. It’s Time to Rethink Bail (60 minutes) – The Honorable Judge Routson
IV. Bail Advocacy (60 minutes) – The Honorable Judge Dankof
The presenters will also allow time for questions during their presentations. Looking forward to seeing you next week!
The Office of the Ohio Public Defender, in partnership with the Ohio Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, Friends to the Indigent, Civil Rights Corps, and esteemed members of our Judiciary, are excited to bring you a valuable, virtual training on Thursday, October 22, 2020 from 1:30 pm to 4:00 p.m. This training will focus on bail advocacy after amendments to Rule 46. Featured speakers include the Honorable Judge Dankof from Montgomery County, Honorable Judge Routson from Hancock County, and Civil Rights Corps Executive Alec Karakatsanis. There is no charge to attend this virtual training, and the program is pending approval from the Ohio Supreme Court Commission on Continuing Legal Education to provide 2.5 general CLE hours for participants.
