Excited to announce that the first episode of our brand new podcast will be released on Friday, October 6th. As a meditation on the role of public defense in our society, “Defenders United” will explore the lives and work of public defense attorneys across the United States from the perspective of a current law student. In Episode 1, we discuss a multitude of topics with Legal Aid Society trial attorney and CUNY Law clinical professor Bahar Ansari, including the relationship between her work and her identity as an Iranian-American woman, the singular challenges of representing indigent clients in New York City, sexism in court, and advice for both future defenders and prosecutors. Check out the teaser and remember to give it a listen this weekend!
