Program Description

The Michigan Indigent Defense Commission (MIDC) was awarded Byrne JAG funding to pilot a unique trial simulation program where inexperienced attorneys can become qualified through mock trial exercises. To ensure that indigent accused receive effective assistance of counsel, an MIDC proposed standard requires attorneys providing defense services to meet minimum qualifications. The standard is a tiered system matching experience with case assignments.
