Welcome to the NCDC

National Criminal Defense College (NCDC) was formed in 1985 to continue the important work which had been performed by the National College for Criminal Defense in Houston after that organization closed its doors in 1983.

Each year, the NCDC presents two sessions of the summer Trial Practice Institute on the campus of Mercer Law School in Macon, Georgia.

In addition to the summer Trial Practice Institute in Macon, Georgia, the NCDC conducts weekend seminars on specialized topics at other times of the year and in other locales.
