Akron, Ohio – Administrative Judge Amy Corrigall Jones, Summit County Common Pleas Court General Division, announced the Court is holding a free continuing legal education (CLE) seminar on August 16, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. in the Ceremonial Courtroom of the Summit County Courthouse.
This informational seminar will focus on specialty courts, including the criteria for entry and an overview of program procedures for the Domestic Violence Court, Hope Court, Re-Entry Court, SCORR, Turning Point, and Valor Court. Attorneys attending the course will receive two hours of CLE credit.
“Specialized courts follow the problem-solving court model and differ from traditional courts in that they focus on one type of offense or offender,” explained Judge Corrigall Jones.
“Lead by our judges, a team of professionals work collaboratively to reduce criminal offending through therapeutic and interdisciplinary approaches that address underlying issues without jeopardizing public safety and due process,” continued Judge Corrigall Jones.
“We have seen great success for participants that have completed our specialized docket programs and are providing attorneys an opportunity learn more about these successful programs,” concluded Judge Corrigall Jones.
