With a diverse, experienced, and qualified subject-matter experts in various areas of criminal defense law, PACDL's courses take deep dives in an enhanced learning environment. The Education Committee tries to provide you with professional development that will help you deal with everyday cases that come across your desk as well as cases that are a little out of the ordinary.
