About PBI

The CLE arm of PBA

The continuing legal education arm of the Pennsylvania Bar Association, PBI is a fully self-supporting nonprofit organization. We receive no portion of bar dues, and no government subsidies. Revenue from course tuition and the sale of our books and media is used to meet the costs of producing these services and the costs of operation, and is reinvested in planning and developing new programs, publications, and other services.

Our Mission

PBI’s mission is to provide the Pennsylvania legal community with high-quality, comprehensive and accessible continuing education that enhances legal practice.

Faculty and Authors

Our programs are taught, and our books are written, by practicing lawyers, judges, and law professors who are widely recognized as the leading experts in their field, and who have proven their abilities as teachers, public speakers, and writers. They generously contribute their time and expertise to plan and present our programs and write our books. Every lawyer who attends a PBI course or uses a PBI book owes them a debt of gratitude.

Diversity Policy

PBI will promote diversity in its activities, including election to its Board of Directors, selection of course planners, faculty and authors, employment of its staff, participation in its seminars, publications and other educational activities, and choosing its vendors. PBI will not maintain or practice any policy, whether formal or informal, which has the potential of fostering or resulting in discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, or any other legally protected characteristic.
