Judicial and Bar Conference

Judicial and Bar Conference 2017 logo

During the spring in alternating years, the District of Columbia Courts and the District of Columbia Bar collaborate to present the District of Columbia Judicial and Bar Conference. The event brings together judges, D.C. Bar leadership, and active members of the legal community to discuss timely issues facing the profession. This year, the conference focuses on "Justice for All? Bias and Discrimination in the 21st Century."

The conference will also feature a CLE course about implicit bias as it relates to legal ethics. The CLE course is worth 3.0 MCLE ethics credit hours. Admittance to the CLE requires a separate registration.  

Online registration is now closed for the conference, with the exception of the CLE Program. A limited number of tickets may be available for sale on site.
