Bench-Bar & Annual Conference Returns to Borgata Oct. 16-17

The Philadelphia Bar Association's Bench-Bar & Annual Conference will return to The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, N.J. on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 16-17.

The Bench-Bar & Annual Conference provides attendees with the opportunity to earn continuing legal education credit while networking with colleagues and members of the bench. Hundreds of attorneys and judges attend annually. The event has been held at Borgata in 2004, 2010 and 2014.

Julia Swain, a partner at Fox Rothschild LLP, is chair of the 2015 Bench-Bar & Annual Conference. "We are delighted to return to the Borgata for the Bench-Bar & Annual Conference," Swain said. "Planning is underway for another terrific conference with many opportunities for networking and education."

The deadline for proposals for continuing legal education courses for the Bench-Bar & Annual Conference is Monday, March 16. Proposals should include a brief description of the program and identify the course planner and proposed panelists. Composition of the panels should reflect the diversity within the legal community and when appropriate, include members of the judiciary.

Please note that a representative of a company that could potentially be a sponsor of the Conference is not permitted to serve as a panelist. Programs should be one hour long, with no more than four panelists. A program may have one moderator in addition to the panelists. Decisions regarding the programs selected will be made by Friday, March 27. The Bench-Bar Committee will have final approval on the selected panelists.

The Signature Sponsor for the 2015 Bench-Bar & Annual Conference is Love Court Reporting. For information on sponsorship opportunities, contact Tracey McCloskey at or call 215-238-6360.
