CLE Session: Appellate Mediation in Pennsylvania

On December 7, 2009 by Schnader

Nancy Winkelman, co-chair of the Firm’s Appellate Practice Group, served as a course planner along with Joseph Torregrossa, the Director of the Third Circuit Court of Appeals’ Appellate Mediation Program, and as a faculty member of a newly-developed continuing legal education course titled “Appellate Mediation in Pennsylvania.” The course, which was presented in Philadelphia on December 7 and in Pittsburgh on December 9, discussed the appellate mediation programs in the Pennsylvania Superior Court, the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. The program was co-sponsored by the Pennsylvania Bar Institute, the Appellate Advocacy Committee of the Pennsylvania Bar Association (of which Carl Solano, a partner in Schnader’s Philadelphia office, is co-chair), and the Third Circuit Bar Association (of which Ms. Winkelman is a co-founder, former president, and current Board member).
