Lunchtime CLE - Everything You Wanted to Know About Treatment Court

CLE_Everything You Wanted to Know About Treatment Court

Hosted by the Criminal Justice Section

The Philadelphia Treatment Court (PTC) has been operational since 1997 and will be celebrating its 20 year anniversary next year. PTC was the first drug court in Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania currently has more than thirty (30) drug courts. There are 3000 drug courts nationwide.

This CLE will examine the history and philosophy of problem solving courts. Expert faculty will explain how the PTC works. The discussion will address specific issues including eligibility, the application process and the requirements for the successful completion of the program.

These problem solving courts provide a substantial benefit for many clients in the appropriate cases and all practitioners need to understand PTC requirements and limitations to effectively advocate for clients.
