Bench and Bar
A Candid Conversation with the Hennepin County Civil Judges
Getting to know your judge will improve your court presentation by helping you emphasize the judge’s priorities and avoid annoyances. This unique CLE and reception offers you an opportunity to establish rapport with the judges outside the courtroom. This event features two parts: For the first hour, Hennepin County District Court’s civil judges will share information about themselves, their professional and judicial experiences, their courtroom preferences, and their advice for effective advocacy. In the second hour, the judges and attendees will mingle at a reception that will afford the opportunity to get to know the judges in a less formal setting. Thank you to Fredrikson & Byron, P.A., for hosting the discussion and reception.
