Internationally known forensic pathologist, attorney and medical-legal consultant Dr. Cyril H. Wecht will be the headliner at a Continuing Legal Education Seminar May 14th at Mohegan Sun.

The event is sponsored jointly by the PA Superior Court, the Wilkes Barre Law and Library Association and the Lackawanna County Bar Association.

“This is an exceptional opportunity for lawyers to earn Continuing Legal Education Credits,” according to Superior Court President Judge Correale Stevens.

“Dr. Wecht has been on nationally syndicated programs discussing the assassinations of both President John F. Kennedy and Senator Robert F. Kennedy, the death of Elvis Presley, the O.J. Simpson case, and the JonBenet Ramsey cases. His expertise has been utilized in the Mary Jo Kopechne, Sunny von Bulow and many other high profile cases,” Stevens noted.

In addition to Dr. Wecht’s presentation, the seminar will include a summary of appellate rules. Superior Court Judges Jack Panella and David Wecht along with Attorney Dean Phillips will use a “Jeopardy” format to engage the attendees in reviewing appellate rules.

“Judges Panella and Wecht and Attorney Phillips have put together an informative yet entertaining way to do an in-depth look at the appellate rules.”

“And Wilkes Barre Law and Library Association President Joseph Saporito and Lackawanna County Bar President Jane Carlonas are committed to providing lawyers with outstanding legal education seminars and it is a pleasure to work with them on this CLE presentation,’ Stevens concluded.

Lawyers should contact the Joe Burke at the Wilkes Barre Law and Library (Joseph.Burke@luzernecounty.org) to make reservations.

The event will take place from 2 pm to 5 pm at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.
