Due to the confidential nature of the materials on the Public Defender Resource Center, only active Public Defenders, attorneys who are actively accepting appointments in indigent criminal cases, and retired Appellate or Public Defenders who are not practicing or who are IPDA officers/board member are eligible for membership. Attorneys who seek membership based on accepting appointments will be contacted for the names, case numbers, and counties of three State criminal cases in which appointments to represent indigent defendants have been accepted in the last year. Once that information is received, your application will be processed. Case information is subject to verification.
Complete Sign Up. You will receive confirmation by email when your request has been approved.
