The Pennsylvania Bar Association has assumed control of the Pennsylvania Bar Institute after audits showed the PBI lost more than $4.1 million between 2015 and 2017 and had been operating since Jan. 1 at an operating loss of roughly $44,000 per week, according to a letter sent to the PBI’s directors and officers from outgoing PBA president Sharon Lopez last week.

The PBI board, which has many members in common with the PBA board, voted to eliminate the officers and directors of the PBI in April. Lopez said in an interview Thursday that the decision was not made lightly, and the PBI is now being assessed to determine how it should proceed. Property leases and personnel costs will be taken into account, Lopez said.
