It’s not often lawyers and judges mix work and a good time, but over the past 19 years the IndyBar’s Bench Bar Conference has become known as the premier event to do just that. Scheduled for June 14-16 at French Lick Springs Resort and Casino, those attending will be treated to an opening dinner at West Baden Springs, unique programming, and networking unrivaled in Indiana.
Attracting over 300 attorneys, judicial officers and guests, the Bench Bar Conference has a loyal following and a great reputation as one of the most valuable CLE events offered in the region. Last year more than 50 first timers attended, proving that more lawyers are discovering the benefit of the conference each year.
The Indianapolis legal community is very fortunate to have such a positive working relationship between the Bench and Bar and the Conference reinforces that positive bond. More than a dozen seminars will be offered on a variety of informative topics in criminal, civil, family and ADR. The program panels are set to feature well-regarded lawyers and judicial officers from federal, state and trial courts.
Those scheduled to present programming include U.S. District Court Judge Tanya Walton Pratt, U.S. Magistrate Judge Debra McVicker Lynch, Indiana Supreme Court Justice Steven David, Indiana Court of Appeals Judges Margret Robb, Carr Darden, and Cale Bradford, Indiana University Maurer School of Law Professor Fred Cate, and numerous other judicial officers and prominent attorneys. A full program listing, as well as registration information, is now online at www.indybenchbar.org. Program fees start at $275 and are discounted until May 1.•
