September 9, 2019 – Philadelphia, PA – Neff & Sedacca, P.C. Partner Marc Neff to Speak At Pennsylvania Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers Continuing Legal Education Program
Marc Neff will speak at the upcoming Pennsylvania Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (PACDL) continuing legal education program “Defending Education Professionals and Students” on Friday October 4th at The Inn at Villanova University in Radnor, Pennsylvania. The full day CLE program will feature four (4) in-depth criminal defense topics impacting the education industry. A practicing criminal defense attorney for more that 30 years, Mr. Neff will be a co-presenter on “Defending the Education Professional.” He will be joined by in-house counsel for the Pennsylvania State Education Association (PSEA) to discuss the unique issues teachers face if accused of inappropriate and/or criminal conduct both at work or outside of school. Other program topics will cover defending students, hazing and common sense responses in cases of child endangerment and abuse allegations.
“Many people don’t realize the potential consequences to their careers and lives overall and as criminal defense attorneys it is important to understand this ever-changing area of the law in order to be the best advocate for our clients,” says Neff. PACDL courses encourage thinking and problem-solving along with the application of such skills on the job. The past PACDL speaker goes on to add, “Designating a full day program to the matter of education law and criminal defense further illustrates its importance today and in the future.”
