Bench Bar 2021
: “ I Want My BBC
!” Holiday Toy Drive
The Palm Beach County Bar Association is amped up to host its 2021 Bench Bar Conference with co-chairs , Rebecca Brock and Lauren Johnson ! For over forty years , the judges and lawyers of Palm Beach County ( and beyond ) have met to address pending issues , discuss evolutions in the law , and establish connections with each other . Today , the Bench Bar Conference continues to be the premier event in the Fifteenth Judicial Circuit that bridges the gap between the judiciary and attorneys .
Speaking of forty years … MTV is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2021 , which led us to our theme this year : “ I Want My BBC !” We have a few rockin ’ surprises in store , so be sure to register early !
The Conference itself will take place virtually on April 9 , 2021 . However , the Palm Beach County Bar Association will be hosting an in-person lunch at the Marriott West Palm Beach on April 6 , 2021 . During the lunch , we will hear from Chief Judge Krista Marx on the State of the Court , congratulate the winners of our various awards , and honor our retiring Clerk of Court , Sharon Bock , who will provide the keynote address .
Any law firm interested in sponsoring the Conference may pay online or mail a check to the Palm Beach County Bar Association , Attn : Carla Tharp Brown , P . O . Box 17726 , West Palm Beach , FL 33416 .
