Mandatory Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court requires all Pennsylvania Bar members to obtain continuing legal education credits during the attorney’s “compliance year.”
The Supreme Court’s Continuing Legal Education Board, recognizing the Association’s long and continuing commitment to training excellence, has designated the Defender Association of Philadelphia an “Accredited Continuing Legal Education Provider.” The Defender Association of Philadelphia was the first (1992) law firm in the state to achieve such a designation.
Throughout the year, the Defender Association of Philadelphia in coordination with The Juvenile Defenders Association of Pennsylvania/ JDAP sponsors mandatory continuing legal education programs for Pennsylvania C.L.E. credit compliance. These seminars frequently feature nationally known experts on a variety of topic: advocacy skills, ethics, scientific evidence, expert witness evidence, etc.
