Bucks Magisterial District judges recertified


Bucks County Magisterial District Judges Joseph P. Falcone, Joanne V. Kline, Jean Seaman and Jan Vislosky-Duffy were again certified for service as members of the Pennsylvania Judiciary after successfully completing continuing legal education course work.
Conducted by the Minor Judiciary Education Board (MJEB) and the Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts (AOPC), the educational program for Magisterial District Judges (MDJs) is held in Harrisburg. The weeklong instructional program is designed to ensure that MDJs remain current in a variety of legal topics and management techniques required to fairly adjudicate cases and effectively supervise a district court office.
Continuing education course work is required by statute of each of the more than 500 Pennsylvania MDJs, with approximately 50 MDJs attending one of 14 such classes during each academic year.
