Candid Conversations - First Impressions from the Newest Members of the Hennepin County Bench

Event Description


Know your judge. That is often the first piece of advice that experienced lawyers give to newer lawyers. But how do you do that? This unique CLE and reception is a step in that direction.

For the first hour, most of the very newest judges on the Hennepin County District Court will share background about themselves, their professional and judicial experiences, and their tips to lawyers about how to effectively handle cases when you are assigned to them. 

In the second hour, the judges and attendees will mingle at a reception that will allow the attendees to get to know these judges in a less formal setting.

Thank you to our host, Fredrikson & Byron, for sponsoring the social hour to follow.
