CLE April 23, 2019

JLS is happy to offer another CLE on Tuesadyy, April 23, 2019 at 5:00pm in the offices of Cohen Seglias Pallas Greenhall & Furman, PC, 30 S. 17th Street, 19th Floor, Philadelphia, PA 19103.  The cost is $85.00 for two hours of CLE including 0.5 hrs of ethics.

2019 marks the centennial of the Polish -American relationship as the US has officially established relationship with the newly re-born Poland in April of 1919.  To mark the occasion, JLS presents its new CLE dealing with the first two modern constitutions: the US Constitution of 1787 and the Polish Constitution of May 3, 1791.

US was the first county to have a modern and written constitution and Poland, equally, was the first such country in Europe (with France being the third one).  This CLE will compare the principles of modern democracy as established by the US and Polish constitutions and explore the  historical legal context in which the Polish constitution arose.  While both countries had distinct historical roots and underlying legal and constitutional traditions, their constitutions were grounded in several shared principles, many of which survive to this day.  We will examine the underlying legal theories of what are the proper role of various branches of government and examine the role of lawyers and legal systems in the modern democracies. We weill aslo examine underlying ethical obligations of legal professionals in protecting the rights of the citizens and maintaining the democratic rule.

Presenters:  Marian A.  Kornilowicz and Elizabeth M. Zechenter

In 2011, Mr. Toczydlowski retired from public service and began a solo law practice.  That same year he was retained by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia to assist in its efforts to respond to the Philadelphia Grand Jury Report concerning the sexual abuse of minors by clerics.  In April of 2018, he closed his practice.

Mr. Toczydlowski has served as a consultant to and speaker for the U.S. Department of Justice, the Bureau of Justice Assistance, the National Institute of Justice, and the National Prosecutor’s Research Institute.  He has taught as an Adjunct Professor in criminal justice at both the Community College of Philadelphia and Drexel University.
