every Bench Bar for decades and had a great experience each time. Bench-Bar is
a wonderful opportunity for lawyers and judges of every level of experience to
build relationships and learn from each other." |
- Justice Tom Waterman, Iowa Supreme Court
|"Over the years,
the Bench-Bar Conference has engendered open discussions that prompt positive
action on emerging issues of interest to the bench and the bar. This
conference stands as a tremendous opportunity for any lawyer and any judge to
be part of the mix!" |
- Annette J.
Iowa District Court Judge
|"I graduated from Drake Law
School in 2010 and was
admitted to the Iowa Bar that same year. I was fortunate enough to attend
the Iowa Bench-Bar Conference in 2012, and
found it to be a tremendous experience--especially for a "greenhorn” attorney
like me. It was a great opportunity to meet attorneys, judges, and
justices from throughout the state in an environment much less formal than that
of a courtroom. Throughout law school people told me that the legal
community in Iowa
was one of the most congenial and professional in the nation. The
experience at the Bench-Bar Conference certainly proved to me that those people
were correct. Not only is the Iowa
legal community congenial and professional, it is full of great attorneys,
judges, and justices who have a strong desire to mentor and to lead."
