Here's an email that went out from Chief Judge Altonaga, Looks to be a great conference.
On behalf of all of the Judges of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida, I am pleased to invite you to attend our Court's biennial Bench and Bar Conference. The Conference will be held at the Miami Beach Convention Center on September 8, 2023, in Miami Beach, Florida. The Bench and Bar Conference Ad Hoc Committee has put together a wonderful program.
It is our hope that attorneys with a variety of practice
areas and diverse experience levels will attend the Conference. To encourage
newer members of the Bar to attend, the Committee has allocated 100 seats for
young lawyers (defined as lawyers in their first five years of practice). The
discounted price for the first 100 qualifying young lawyers will be $50 for
general admission. Once the first 100 spots are filled, all tickets will be
sold at the full price of $200. We anticipate that tickets will sell quickly,
so if you plan to attend please register as soon as possible. Kindly note that
receipt of this invitation does not automatically reserve your spot.
Building on the success of prior Bench and Bar Conferences, the 2023 Conference promises to be exceptional. In addition to attending two plenary sessions, you will also have the choice to attend two of six breakout sessions. During these breakout sessions, attendees will have the chance to communicate informally with Judges and other attorneys in smaller, seminar-type groups.
Please visit the website, www.sdflabenchbarconference.com for additional information on the sessions and to register before the Conference sells out.
Best wishes, and we hope to see you at the Conference.
Cecilia M. Altonaga
Chief United States District Judge
