“The National Criminal Defense College (NCDC) is more than a training—it is an enlightening experience on how to truly take a case to trial.  The faculty is great, the attendees are inspiring, and the network of NCDC lawyers I now have access to is invaluable.  Being a public defender in Orleans Parish can sometimes be intimidating.  Now, I bring an NCDC moxie to the representation of my clients when I proudly stand next to them in court.  Without the Camille F. Gravel Jr. Scholarship I never would have been able to attend NCDC because my office simply does not have the resources.  I am truly grateful for the scholarship and the experience it provided me in becoming a better advocate for the indigent of New Orleans.”  ~William Snowden, 2015 Camille Gravel Scholarship Recipient
