    The 2020 ABA Summit on Public Defense: While high level felony convictions draw the most attention, most people interact with the criminal justice system in misdemeanor courts. Cases in these courts are often litigated quickly, without much process or discovery, and the likely outcome often avoids incarceration. The impact of misdemeanor court convictions on clients can be grave. For example, terms of probation can lead to additional violations cases, and fines and fees can lead to endless debt cycles. The 2020 Summit will explore efforts to improve misdemeanor courts with a focus on the role of the public defender in implementing reforms.
