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, a proposed MIDC standard requires attorneys providing defense services to meet minimum qualification. The standard is a tiered system which matches experience with case assignments.
