Continuing Legal Education
The Lackawanna Bar Association currently charges non-members $60.00 per hour for continuing education and members $25.00 per hour. In addition, the LBA offers a minimum of 12 free credits to members each year. This means payment of your annual dues can be completely offset by the cost of obtaining your continuing legal education credits.
Payment of your membership dues allows you access to the Lackawanna Bar Association website. Our newly designed website contains many of the local Courts’ Opinions, information about our city, county and commonwealth. The by-laws of the Lackawanna Bar Association are also available on the website.
Access to all Lackawanna Bar Association social functions including attendance at the Thomas M. Holmes Esquire Bench Bar Conference, the Annual Membership Meeting, Young Lawyers events and various other Bar Association events.
Fifty-two issues of the Lackawanna Jurist, which is published weekly and contains many important notices regarding the practice of law in Lackawanna County. Members receive discounted rates for publishing notices in the Jurist.
