Annual Conference

Yearly Event in September

The Colorado State Public Defender Conference is a yearly event in September. Over several days, our staff receives education in areas that impact their various work responsibilities. Employees from all scopes of work attend the trainings they choose to attend based on what interests them. Sessions are taught by local and nationally recognized experts. In most years, lawyers who attend all sessions earn their required continuing legal education credits for the year of attendance. On a deeper level, Conference is a coming together, a celebration of our efforts, a time to reflect on our prior year’s experiences as Defenders, and a reinvigoration to face another year’s challenges. Previous conferences were held at conference centers in the Denver metro area, over Zoom during COVID lockdown times, and in 2022 in the beautiful Colorado mountains at Snowmass.
