As the Penn State University scandal involving allegations of child sexual abuse and cover-up by university officials continues to unfold, the Cyril H.

Please join Joan Mills and Sara Gluzman, respectively the manager and a forensic interviewer at A Child's Place at Mercy; criminal defense attorney Charles R. LoPresti; Bruce Noel, intake manager for the Allegheny County Department of Children, Youth and Families; Soo Song, first assistant U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania; and Pittsburgh Police Detective April Campbell for this timely and informative full-day program. Additional speakers may be announced at a later date.

This course is approved by the Pennsylvania CLE Board for five (5) hours of Substantive CLE credit and one (1) hour of Ethics CLE credit.
