Managing Defender Manual
The IDC adopted "Managing Defender Manual" as an informal guide on managing defenders' responsibilities. A managing defender is a specific indigent defense provider with the role of coordinating local attorneys, staff, and resources related to providing indigent defense services in one or more indigent defense systems. This person is the central point of contact for information about the system’s indigent defense services and represents the system in various contexts.
