Judicial and Bar Conference

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's theme is "Bias and the Law."

The conference will also feature a CLE course that will explore a cutting-edge legal ethics issue and where participants can earn MCLE ethics credits for other jurisdictions. A separate fee will be required to attend the CLE course. 

Do you have an idea for a conference program? Learn how you can submit a program proposal for the conference's afternoon seminar block.
