Originally recorded at the Criminal Law Symposium in June 2019.
The credits offered by this course count toward the CLE requirement of Criminal Procedure Rule 801, for appointment as defense counsel in a capital case.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The CLE Board indicates that you can earn all 18 of your capital case credits by distance education. However, for the general Pennsylvania CLE requirement of 12 credits per compliance year, only 6 can be earned by distance education per compliance year.
