There have been a number of special events in April and May at the Bar Association. On April 25th, we were honored to be able to welcome Chief Justice Ronald Castille of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to Delaware County. The Chief Justice joined President Judge Chad Kenney and members of the Bench and presented a CLE on the state of Pennsylvania courts. The George B. Lindsay Foundation sponsored this event
The Bench and Bar Association celebrated Law Day on May 3rd. We had record attendance at the morning and afternoon ceremonies. The recipient of the Themis Award was Linda Barbera, Administrator of Treatment Court; Gene Foehl, Esquire, received the Elizabeth C. Price Award; and the Liberty Bell Award was given to Candice Linehan of Women Against Rape.
Remember that on June 5, 6, and 7, 2013, our annual Bench Bar Conference will be held at Skytop Lodge in the Pocono Mountains. This is a great opportunity to network with members of the judiciary and other attorneys while earning 12 CLE credits. For information about cost and registration, please click HERE.
