Next Wednesday in Philadelphia, Third Circuit Chief Judge D. Brooks Smith and Judge Stephanos Bibas will be the featured presenters at a CLE program entitled Effective Third Circuit Advocacy. The event is co-sponsored by the Third Circuit Bar Association and the Philadelphia chapter of the Federal Bar Association. Registration is open now at this link.
- Wednesday, March 6 from 3 to 5 with a wine-and-cheese reception afterwards
- Ceremonial courtroom (first floor), James Byrne U.S. Courthouse, 601 Market Street
- 2 hours Pennsylvania substantive CLE credit, approval pending
- Registration is $25 for members of 3CBA and/or FBA, $50 for non-members. Discounted registration is available for law students and public-sector and public-interest attorneys.
Besides Chief Judge Smith and Judge Bibas, also presenting will be Chip Becker of Kline & Specter, Elise Bruhl of the Philadelphia Law Department, Nilam Sanghvi of the Pennsylvania Innocence Project, Nancy Winkelman of the Philadelphia District Attorney’s office, and me.
This is the third in a series of advocacy CLE events that 3CBA has co-sponsored. The first two events—in Wilmington, Delaware, featuring Judges Jordan and Roth, and in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, featuring Judges Vanaskie and Krause—were both fantastic. If you’re able to attend this one, you’d be foolish not to.
CLE registration is capped, so register now.
