Pennsylvania Supreme Court to Livestream 300th Anniversary Symposium
May 06, 2022
Focused on making courts accessible for all Pennsylvanians, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania today announced that registration is now open for attorneys and judges seeking credit hours for the Court’s 300th anniversary livestream of its upcoming May argument session and symposium.
The symposium sessions are available for continuing legal education (CLE) and continuing judicial education (CJE) credits through the Pennsylvania Bar Institute (PBI) by registering at https://www.pbi.org/Meetings/Meeting.aspx?ID=43531.
This Court’s two-day symposium on May 19 and 20 will review key aspects of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court's jurisprudence, use the Court's tricentennial to explore broader issues in our republican form of government, and expound on the role of today's Supreme Court as the administrator of Pennsylvania's Unified Judicial System.
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court is the Commonwealth’s highest court and the oldest appellate court in the nation. The early Court consisted of a chief justice and two associate justices. Throughout the centuries, it has evolved to its current number of seven sitting justices who make the final decisions interpreting Pennsylvania’s laws and Constitution. The Court has full administrative authority over all aspects of Pennsylvania’s judicial system and may also hear cases involving issues of immediate public importance arising in the Commonwealth.
Information about the history of the Court, 300th committee members and upcoming events is available here and via Facebook @PennsylvaniaCourts and Twitter @PACourts.
