The Association's Probate and Trust Law Section is charged with promoting the objectives of the Association and with improving justice in the probate and trust law areas. Section members are invited to quarterly luncheons and other organized events featuring continuing legal education opportunities.
Members receive articles and updates about probate, trust and other related areas of the law, as well as of proceedings in the Orphans' Courts of Philadelphia and the surrounding counties, in the Section's quarterly Probate & Trust Law Section Newsletter. The Section maintains standing committees focusing on education, elderlaw, legislation, office procedures and technology, publications, public service, rules and practice, and taxation which are geared toward helping section members maximize their professional skills.

CLE discounts available!

Section members are now eligible to receive discounts for CLE programs presented by their sections under a new agreement between the Philadelphia Bar Association and the Pennsylvania Bar Institute.

The new discount program only applies to programs proposed and presented by the sections and the various committees of those sections. It does not apply to stand-alone Bar Association committees. The discount program became effective on May 1.
