Foundational Mitigation Training

Criminal defense practitioners, sentence reform advocates, and other justice partners are invited to attend the Foundational Mitigation Training hosted and presented by Advancing Real Change (ARC), Inc. on July 25, 2024, at The University of Baltimore.


Foundational Mitigation Training

This seminar is designed to equip and support those who wish to elevate client advocacy through mitigation. Sessions will be led by experienced mitigation practitioners presenting substantial topics including The Power and Importance of Mitigation, Locating Witnesses, Records Collection and Analysis, and others covering key aspects of mitigation practice. See the agenda here.

Mitigation is a powerful but often underutilized method of investigative advocacy that gives clients the best chance at receiving equitable legal outcomes. It offers judges, juries, prosecutors, and other decision-makers a thorough and accurate account of a client’s life. Establishing this method in all aspects of justice work is especially critical when serving clients from marginalized and underserved communities to help ensure equity.

To join us for this training, please register below by close of business on July 19th.

Please note: Priority will be extended to advocates and practitioners in Maryland and surrounding jurisdictions as seating is limited. A member of our team will confirm reservations via email.
