Continuing Legal & Judicial Education

CLE & CJE Ethics Courses

Each year, Pennsylvanians for Modern Courts provides a series of Continuing Legal Education and Continuing Judicial Education courses. These programs usually focus on the ethical issues surrounding high profile cases in Pennsylvania. They are held as webinars so they can be accessed by attorneys and judges across the Commonwealth.

PMC in the Community CLE Training Programs

In addition to our ethics courses, we also provide CLE programs which provide the training necessary to serve as an ambassador within our outreach program, PMC in the Community.
