The FCBA Southern California Chapter and the Conference of California Public Utility Counsel will host a CLE Seminar on Tuesday, March 14 from 12:00 – 1:45 p.m. ET entitled Keeping Families Connected: Developments in Communication Services for Incarcerated People.  This program will be held virtually via the Zoom platform.

Incarcerated communication services are critical to keeping families connected to their loved ones who are detained or incarcerated.  Whether through voice or video calls or other means, the ability to communicate is vital.  Federal and state laws and regulations for these services have changed in important ways in the past few years.  The CLE will provide an overview of recent federal developments and a brief survey of state approaches.
