August 26-28
The Bench Bar Conference has always been an exciting and entertaining way to gather with members of the judiciary and obtain mandatory CLE hours.  This year will be no exception, but with even more surprises and “firsts”, beginning with an unprecedented move of offering a total of 12 credit hour CLEs, Thursday p.m. - Saturday noon. 
For starters, our venue this year will be the luxurious Windsor Court Hotel, located in New Orleans.  If you are unfamiliar with the Windsor Court, this hotel has earned more awards than we can mention in this email; it truly is the epitome of luxury.  The hotel has recently completed a $15 million renovation, so every room offered in our package will be elegant and exceed your expectations.  Our packages this year will also offer suites!
Registration will include a Thursday evening Welcome Reception and Bourbon Law CLE on the Riverboat New Orleans, loading will begin at approximately 6pm and we will sail from 7-9. Friday night dinner at The Court of Two Sisters will also be included in the registration.
