The recent juvenile justice scandal that rocked the courts of Luzerne County sent tremors throughout the Commonwealth and undermined the publicís confidence in our ability to police our own. In response, the Interbranch Commission was created to investigate the situation in Luzerne County and make recommendations on what can be done to improve the administration of juvenile justice throughout Pennsylvania. In May 2010, the Commission released its report and recommendations. Pennsylvania Bar Association President Gretchen Mundorff created a Task Force to study the Interbranch Commission Report and identify concrete ways in which those recommendations can be implemented.
The Task Force CLE Subcommittee designed this program to address our responsibilities as members of the bar and officers of the court. Our faculty highlights what each of us can do to restore the confidence and faith of the people of Pennsylvania in their bar and judiciary.
