Bench Bar Conference

The Annual Bench Bar Conference presents a unique opportunity for BALC Judges, attorneys and invited guests to learn, interact & network in a casual environment. The conference takes place over a weekend (usually in the Fall) in a destination location. Previous locations include West Point, New York City, Annapolis and Baltimore.  Typically, the weekend consists of a cocktail reception to welcome guests, CLE seminars, group activities and a formal Sunday Brunch before returning back to the Lehigh Valley.
