CLE Reminder: The Lindbergh Kidnapping

A Study in Law and Drama

This special continuing legal education program will explore the legal significance of the Lindbergh Kidnapping case, its effect on substantive law, criminal investigations, and legal ethics. We will also see how drama can educate and shape public perceptions about legal values. Join Mr. William Cameron, author of the award-winning drama “Violet Sharp” and longtime researcher of the kidnapping, and Professor Mark D. Yochum for a lively seminar with exhibits, artifacts and more than a little theatre. (Ms. Sharp was a servant of the Lindberghs who became the focus of police investigations and came to a tragic end.)

This course has been approved by the Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education Board for two (2) hours of substantive law, practice and procedure CLE credit and one (1) hour of ethics, professionalism or substance abuse CLE credit. This three-credit course will be held on Saturday, April 30, in Room 203 of the Duquesne University School of Law from 9:00 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. The cost for the seminar is $75.00.

To register for this program, please contact Kathy Koehler at 412.396.6282 or e-mail koehler@duq.edu.
