Expanding the level of service that has become a hallmark of America's first bar association, Chancellor Albert S. Dandridge III has announced that the Philadelphia Bar Association will serve as a new provider of Continuing Legal Education to lawyers across the region in early 2016.

"The Philadelphia Bar Association looks forward to serving as your convenient, low-cost provider for top-quality CLE programs on the latest issues, legislation, regulations and all other critical topics impacting your practice," said Dandridge. "We will offer a full calendar of CLE courses taught by leaders of the profession as your partner in justice in the Philadelphia legal community for more than 200 years."

The Chancellor added that the 13,000-member Association is "committed to raising the bar on Continuing Legal Education." Accordingly, the new service will offer the following key advantages to area lawyers and legal professionals:

Affordability.
Philadelphia Bar Association CLE courses will be reasonably priced for all practitioners, while providing a level of quality that lawyers have come to expect from the oldest association of lawyers in the United States. Plus, membership has its advantages. Philadelphia Bar Association members will receive cost-saving benefits on all courses.

Convenience.
Join us at the Philadelphia Bar Association's centrally located Conference Center at 1101 Market Street and – coming soon – at partner locations throughout Center City Philadelphia. We bring CLE to you, in a variety of learning formats, so that you have more time to serve the needs of your clients.

Innovation.
Look for new and unique CLE courses that will complement a comprehensive program of practical core subject matter essential to your practice needs. Learn from exceptional and diverse faculty. Plus, you'll be able to register for CLE courses quickly and easily on our newly redesigned Philadelphia Bar Association website, launching soon.

Personalized Service.
The Association is delighted to welcome Tara D. Phoenix, our new Director of Continuing Legal Education, who brings 20 years of experience and skill in the adult education and compliance industry to Philadelphia Bar Association CLE. Phoenix and the staff of the Philadelphia Bar Association are dedicated to bringing quality service and professionalism to the delivery of CLE.
