Appointed Counsel List Update

December 15, 2016

The Criminal Justice Advisory Board has been tasked with creating a committee which will oversee the Summit County Criminal Indigent List, and the committee will also determine which CLE seminars qualify as meeting the requirements to satisfy inclusion on the list for practitioners.

The list of seminars on our website has been used in the past to satisfy the previous requirements. The new committee, once established, will need to identify whether these CLE seminars are still adequate. Therefore at this point, the Staff of the Akron Bar Association is no longer able to identify which courses will meet the future requirements. We will make this information available to you as quickly as we can once we receive it.

The hope is to have everything established and running under the new rules no later than April 1, 2017. Practitioners who wish to participate on the list will be included on future communications with further instruction on how to apply.
