Every public defense practitioner will work with clients who come from different socio-economic and racial backgrounds than theirs. Since developing a trusting and productive client relationship is critical to providing successful client-centered representation, effective communication between client and defense team is a crucial building block. This session will provide nuts and bolts for developing healthy and beneficial client relationships, with an eye on the differences that challenge many of us and also delve into how these dynamics impact both the client and the case. Multiple perspectives aid this presentation of human-centric communication.
