What's happening

A Note from the Director

For more than 45 years, the attorneys at SCPDA have been dedicated to becoming better advocates, in the hopes that our efforts help create a "justice system" that is truly just and equitable and not one that simply perpetuates systemic disparities. We pride ourselves in attracting creative people who want to make a positive difference; life long learners who want to develop their skills; and innovators who seek to modernize their approach to better serve our clients.
