Planned and developed by the Pennsylvania Superior Court and the Pennsylvania Bar Association Appellate Advocacy Committee, this Symposium showcases practice, procedures, and perspectives from the Superior Court Bench.

We are recognizing the Superior Court's 125th anniversary, and you are invited to the celebration!

Join fellow practitioners to learn from distinguished jurists and key court staff as you earn three CLE credits. Journey back as the panel highlights the court's milestones dating back to the industrial era, through two world wars, during the civil rights movement, and as an instrumental player in the development of criminal law during the 60's.
