Family Law
Spring 2019 Family Court Bench and Bar Round Table


Join the HCBA Family Law Section for its annual Bench and Bar Round Table event! Hear from Judge Charlene Hatcher regarding updates in Family Court, including judicial officer changes, family court services, guardian ad litem appointments, the family court enhancement project, and more. This is also an opportunity for members of the bar to ask questions of the Judicial Officers and raise topics for discussion about how to improve Family Court. Please submit any questions or requested topics on your online registration form.

At the event, we will also vote on the slate of candidates for Section officers, and award a distinguished HCBA Family Law Section member with the Professionalism Award. 

Appetizers and desserts are included in the admission price at this beautiful venue. There will be a cash bar, as well. We look forward to seeing you there!
