The State Bar of Arizona has mandated that all members of the Bar must attend a Bar approved course on "Professionalism."¬† Most Arizona prosecutors have already fulfilled this requirement.¬† All new admittees are required to take this course within 12 months of admission.
The Maricopa County Public Defender's Office & APAAC will be co-sponsoring a Professionalism Course on Friday, March 22, 2013.¬† Priority will be given to those who NEED to take the course this year.¬† Registration will start at 10:45 a.m., the lecture will begin at 11:00 a.m. and run until approximately 3:15 p.m.¬† There will NOT be a lunch break, so please feel free to bring your own lunch.
There is no registration fee for this course, however, APAAC is not able to reimburse for travel related expenses.
PLEASE NOTE:¬† 4.0 hours of the Professionalism Course DO count as Ethics hours for CLE purposes.¬† However, Ethics hours DO NOT count as Professionalism hours.
