ETHICAL Challenges in the ADJUDICATION 

of Defendants with MENTAL ILLNESS

An ETHICS and EATS Seminar
Co-sponsored by

Trust Expert Resources

Wednesday, AUGUST 22

8:30 - 11 a.m.
Africa Room, Duquesne Union
and ONLINE via LIVE videostream

If the rule of law exists to protect the rights and dignity of the individual, who could be worthier of its safekeeping than those suffering from mental illness? And yet, whether seeking competent representation, appropriate incarceration facilities or the expungement of records, defendants with diminished mental capacity often find themselves at the mercy of a system that is indifferent at best, and unethical at worst.

If you are an attorney, social worker or other professional involved in the adjudication of defendants with mental illness, please join psychiatrist Burt Singerman, ethicist Lyndsie Ferrara, public defender Chuck Van Keuren, and social service provider Stacy Condie for this special breakfast seminar examining various ethical challenges and best practices for meeting them.

This program is approved by the Pennsylvania CLE Board for 2 Hours of Ethics CLE credit, onsite or online.

This program is offered for 2 Hours of Social Work continuing education credit through co-sponsorship of the University of Pittsburgh School of Social Work, a Council on Social Work Education-accredited school and, therefore, a PA pre-approved provider of social continuing education. These credit hours satisfy requirements for LSW/LCSW, LPC and LMFT biennial license renewal. For information on social work continuing education, call 412-624-3711. Please note that these credits may only be earned onsite.
