U.S. Courts Bench Bar Conference
2022 Conferences
2022 District of Idaho Bench-Bar Conferences

The District of Idaho is happy to announce it will be hosting two in-person bench-bar conferences this year:  October 7, 2022, at the Hilton Garden Inn in Idaho Falls and October 28, 2022, at Boise Centre in Boise.  We look forward to catching up after multiple years apart!

This year's conference is titled "Navigating Your Federal Practice with Confidence."  With so many changes and uncertainties at both the local and national levels these days, how can the legal profession keep up?  The aim of this year's conference is to provide information to help you navigate how these changes are impacting federal practitioners.

First on the agenda is a look at water rights in Idaho -- both how they have been historically adjudicated and how to deal with these rights in a changing climate.  Next, we'll examine how electronically stored information (ESI) impacts discovery and ways you can avoid adverse outcomes in litigation as technology evolves.

After lunch, with numerous new federal judges joining the bench in the last two years, our District of Idaho law clerks will take the stage to share chambers' practices and how to prepare for cases with each of our federal judges.  Next, Erwin Chemerinsky, Dean of Berkeley Law and nationally recognized expert on constitutional law, will review the U.S. Supreme Court's recent term and highlight what to expect in the upcoming term via Zoom.  Look for your opportunity to pose questions in advance on your registration form.  Finally, we'll have some fun with an engaging game of Judicial Jeopardy! designed to test your knowledge of our federal judges, Idaho legal history, and new practice rules.

Both Idaho Falls and Boise will feature the same sessions (with just a small tweak to presenters), with 5.75 hours of MCLE pending (including 0.5 hours of Ethics credit).  More details can be found by clicking on either the Idaho Falls or Boise agenda in the left navigation pane.  We hope to see you there!
