Highlights for the 2014 conference include:New for 2014: The Practical Practice Track
Bench Bar 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 conference.
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, family law and criminal law.
