Collapse Ethics Potpourri: Ethics of Pro Bono: Accessing Justice in 2017 (Lehighton)

This session will look at the role of the pro bono lawyer in helping those in need access justice in Pennsylvania and beyond in 2017.  The rule of law only exists to the extent that it works for all. Rights mean little if those entitled to them are not aware they exist. Due process is of doubtful value when you are illiterate, or unable to understand the proceedings. Courts are of little value for those who cannot afford the costs to reach them, from filing fees not waived to transportation costs.  How a pro bono lawyer can make a difference, and the ethical implications of those actions, will be examined. Substantive issues from expungement to immigration will provide the prism for this pro bono ethics exploration.

    Collapse Vehicle Stops and Searches in Pennsylvania (Lehighton)

    Understand the real invasion

    No matter how wondrous a machine an automobile may be, it has no privacy rights at all. Learn the key to defending your client, whether the legal issue is the stop of a motorist on the highway, a request by the officer for consent to search after such a stop, or a search of a car itself.

     

    Learn why these questions are so critical

    • Why has law enforcement stopped the person operating a vehicle?
    • What is the range of justified activities occurring within the stop?
    • Was consent to search during the stop justified?
    • When may law enforcement search a person’s car without a search warrant?
