Montco attorney Schuman gets legal-education post

Montco attorney Schuman gets legal-education post



A Montgomery County attorney has been appointed vice chair of the Continuing Legal Education Board, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania announced Monday.

Kerry Scott Schuman was chosen to serve as vice chair of the panel, while Kenneth Argentieri, of Allegheny County, was selected as chair.

Burton A. Rose, and Stephen Ledva, Jr., both of Philadelphia, were appointed to the board. Their term started Feb. 23, 2012.

The board consists of ten active Pennsylvania attorneys appointed by the Supreme Court. Their terms are three years, and no member may serve more than two consecutive terms.

The board is responsible for administering the rules pertaining to continuing education for attorneys.

This responsibility began with establishing a  continuing legal education requirements system. It includes updating the requirements and rules,  monitoring each attorney's compliance with the requirements, notifying attorneys of their board  status, and monitoring the board’s providers and courses.

Active attorneys in Pennsylvania must complete, during a certain period of time, 12 hours of continuing legal education, including a minimum of one hour of ethics study.
