    • Via Zoom

    The Delaware Paralegal Association is thrilled to welcome back Deputy Attorney General John Downs, Esq. and Deputy Attorney General Danielle Brennan, Esq., as co-hosts of the second installment of the DPA’s May Crime CLE Event!   

    Please join our co-hosts as they discuss the impact and importance of ethics in Criminal Law.  Now more than ever, we look forward to learning the do's and don’ts of criminal justice and procedure and we welcome hearing the co-hosts’ first-hand accounts in their presentation. 

    The CLE will be held via Zoom so all counties can participate, and a registration link will be emailed the day prior to the event.  We hope to "see" you all there! 

    This qualifies for 1.0 hour of Ethics CLE credit for members of the Delaware Certified Paralegal Program.

    • 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM (EDT)
    • TBD

    Due to the recent revisions in Delaware's Omnibus COVID-19 Order for in-person gatherings, we are contemplating the possibility of having the Annual Meeting in-person, but we first need to know what kind of turnout we would have to see if it is even possible.  The annual meeting will only take place in one format (not both in-person and Zoom), so your response to this Save The Date is important as to how we proceed.  Please note, this does NOT register you for the meeting - another event announcement will be circulated once we have determined how to proceed.

    • June 17, 2021
    • 12:30 PM (EDT)
    • Via Zoom

    We're going virtual... AGAIN!

    While the format preference was nearly tied, due to the guidelines still in place requiring social distancing and restrictions on attendance capacity, the DPA will be hosting our Annual Meeting VIRTUALLY again this year.  While it won't be the same event that we have all come to enjoy and expect prior to COVID, we have surely all grown more proficient in "Zooming" this year! 

    We will be offering two (2) live virtual CLEs via Zoom prior to the Annual Meeting.  There will be separate registrations for each CLE.  The Annual Meeting itself will consist of a vote for the new board of directors, as well as award announcements. 

    A Zoom registration link will be emailed two days prior to each event for which you registered.  Please check your junk and/or spam folders and reach out ahead of time if you didn't receive the link.
