COD Network Statement Of Principles

The Community Oriented Defender Network is a coalition of public defender programs united by the view that the representation of individuals charged with crimes can be made more effective by a deep engagement of defenders with the communities in which their clients live.

The Community Oriented Defender Network Statement of Principles, developed by the Brennan Center in consultation with members of the Community Oriented Defender (COD) Network advisory group, articulates the common goals of COD members. It is intended for COD Network members to use as a tool to inspire staff, educate the public, and build the capacity of the COD movement to make a difference for clients, families and communities.

The Louisiana Public Defender Board joined the COD Network in January 2009. The Orleans Public Defenders and the Calcasieu Public DefenderÌs Office are also members.

The Community Oriented Defender Network is supported by the Brennan Institute of Justice at New York University School of Law.
