Answer the following questions:
- What are some problems the public defenders experience in the film?
- In what ways, if any, do you see examples of good leadership, poor leadership, or no leadership among the public defenders?
- Discuss the organization of the public defenders’ office (as best you can from what is shown in the film). Given what we’ve discussed in class about organizations in general:
- In what ways, if any, could the organization be improved?
- In what ways is the organization already successful?
- Many of the featured public defenders experience burn out.
- What are some reasons behind this burnout?
- How might better management or better organization prevent this burnout?
- Are there any examples in the film which attempt to prevent burnout?
