Though the 20th Annual Bench Bar Conference is just three weeks away, it’s not too late to make plans to join your colleagues at this year’s event. Still need some convincing before you pack your bags for Louisville?

Join us at Bench Bar June 13 to June 15 to:

Learn in Comfort—CLE Without the Suits: The educational programming at the Bench Bar Conference represents some of the finest available to central Indiana attorneys, with top notch presenters and cutting edge topics. Combine that with the simple pleasure of ditching the suit and tie for t-shirts and shorts and you’re learning in comfort—there’s no better way to earn that CLE credit!

Mix Business with Pleasure: There are few who have been graced with the ability to actually enjoy the task of networking. For the rest of us, it’s a necessary evil in developing business and career-advancing relationships…but at Bench Bar, networking is actually fun! Really!

Put a Face with Your Name: Walking into a courtroom to see a judge who recognizes you and recalls a pleasant Bench Bar conversation is a far more confident-inducing experience than being the stranger in the room.

Expand Your Network—even if you aren’t in house counsel, the addition of this new programming track promises to further diversify the practice backgrounds of attendees, helping you build even more relationships that may lead to future business or referrals.

Champion a Great Cause—Support of the Indianapolis Bar Foundation is crucial in maintaining its various philanthropic activities each year, from public legal advice programs to educational scholarships for attorneys (including scholarships to Bench Bar!). There’s no easier way to back the IBF than having a great time during Trivia Night at Bench Bar, now in its second year. Plus, donate the equivalent of one billable hour for the IBF’s “Impact of One” campaign and be entered into special donors-only raffles!

Take A Walk Down Memory Lane—It’s hard to believe that the Bench Bar Conference turns 20 this year. Take a walk down conference memory lane with a Bench Bar retrospective by Tom Davis, pioneer of this great event, at Friday’s dinner.
