The Allegheny County Bar Association Military and Veterans Affairs Committee is hosting a Live Webinar entitled Introduction to the Western District of Pennsylvania Veterans Court and the Role of Re-Entry Programs on May 20, 2022 from 12:00 PM-1:00 PM.
The CLE will provide an overview of the Western District of Pennsylvania Veterans Court including the history, formation, operation, rules and procedures of the federal veterans court program. The CLE will discuss the program's requirements, challenges and successes as well as the requirements for people to become mentors.
Attendees will hear from the Hon. Mark Hornak and representatives from the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the U.S. Office of Probation and Pre-trial Services, the Federal Public Defender's Office and others, including a program graduate and veteran service organization regarding their perspectives on the benefits of this program and the role that specialty treatment courts play in successful re-entry of previously incarcerated individuals.
Not only will this increase awareness and volunteerism to support the veteran community, but it also will promote a discussion of other specialty treatment courts and the role these courts play in successful reintegration of previously incarcerated individuals.
