On Friday, November 7, the Connecticut Bar Association, in collaboration with the Hartford County Bar Association and the State of Connecticut Judicial Branch, will sponsor “Raising the Bar: A Bench-Bar Symposium on Professionalism in the Judicial District of Hartford.” In its 13th year, the Connecticut Bar Association Bench-Bar Professionalism Symposium brings together attorneys and judges for thoughtful discussions on the future of the legal profession. BPS Attorneys Richard Brown and Kate Haakonsen will be moderating two of the sessions at this event.
The event will feature a presentation on the maintenance of ethical standards and the preservation of professionalism in the legal profession, as well as a series of panels that will focus on professionalism topics and concerns specific to criminal, family, civil, probate, and real estate/business law. Attorney Richard Brown will serve as the moderator of the criminal law session, while Attorney Kate Haakonsen will moderate the family law session. Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen will deliver the keynote address and will discuss maintaining and enhancing professionalism in his office, which is the state’s largest civil law firm.
