Legal Issues Curricula
MPTC Legal Issues curricula developed for this training year's professional development mandated by the MPTC Committee. At a minimum, the legal update class provided by agencies must include the cases and statutes identified by MPTC in addition to any other laws or cases discussed.
No significant changes have been made to the Legal Updates Curriculum although some language has been added to clarify some of the findings in the following cases:
Commonwealth v DeGray
Commonwealth v Lima
Florida v Harris
US v Jones
