The IndyBar's Bench Bar Conference has long been known as the best opportunity for litigators and judges to mix and mingle in a casual, fun environment. Now in its 21st year, the conference has widened its appeal with the inaugural "Practical Practice" track planned for the 2014 event, to be held June 19-21 at the Hyatt Regency in Cincinnati, Ohio.
The Practical Practice Track is designed to introduce new lawyers or newly solo lawyers to the basics of operating a firm and will also highlight several common solo practice areas, including estate planning. Long time IndyBar Estate Planning & Administration Section member Jerry Hammond of Lewis Wagner LLP will address how to draft a simple will and will educate attendees on the probate process during the "Handling Your First Divorce Case to Drafting Your First Will" session.
If you're new to the practice or if you know someone who could benefit from the Practical Practice Track, please encourage them to visit www.indybenchbar.org. More and more transactional attorneys have attended Bench Bar each year, finding that the casual networking opportunities are valuable even for those who don't appear in court. Bench Bar: It's not just for litigators anymore!
