The Pennsylvania Bar Institute and the Delivery of Legal Services Committee of the Public Interest Section of the Philadelphia Bar Association are co-sponsors of 2009 Public Interest Day offered on December 2, 2009 in Philadelphia.
Whether you are a new or seasoned private practitioner, a public interest attorney, or a pro bono attorney, this course focuses on issues that are currently hot topics throughout the legal community!
Delivering public interest legal services to poor and disadvantaged citizens is a job that is largely undertaken by more than thirty public interest law organizations in the Philadelphia area, as well as by numerous volunteer pro bono attorneys.
Public Interest Law Day is designed to assist these practitioners and their colleagues throughout Pennsylvania in continuing to provide high-quality legal services to this under-served population.
In addition to public interest attorneys, this course will be of interest to pro bono practitioners and private practice attorneys who are interested in learning more about public interest legal services and the current issues affecting the pro bono community.
- CLE Credit Comments: This program has been approved by the Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education Board for 6 total hours of CLE credits, 1.5 of which may be applied toward Ethics.
