The Work of Public Defenders

Please join ACS for an interesting and informative conversation with Lecturer and Three Strikes Project attorney Lara Hoffman for a seminar on the work of public defenders. Hoffman has an extensive background in indigent public defense and social justice. Before teaching at Stanford Law School, she served as a federal public defender in California, where she represented individuals accused of federal crimes, including fraud, narcotics trafficking, firearms possession and trafficking, bank robbery, illegal reentry, and tax offenses. She has also represented clients convicted of serious state crimes in their post-conviction habeas appeals and is engaged in multiple innocence investigations for clients who were erroneously convicted of murder and attempted murder in California courts.

This event will take place on February 13 from 1 to 2 PM. This is also a unique opportunity to connect with a 1L writing professor on an issue related to their work. Lunch will be provided to those who RSVP.
