What Do You Anticipate Most
BAR'S NEW HQ?

I am thrilled about the D.C. Bar's new headquarters!
The location near D.C. Superior Court is a huge
advantage for trial attorneys like myself. I'm certain
my colleagues and I will make frequent use of the
common spaces between hearings, and I will now
be able to fit afternoon CLE courses into my busy

The move of the Bar to its new headquarters will
significantly improve the ability of the institution to
meet the needs of D.C. lawyers and the community.
Bar members attending courses and committee
meetings will benefit from the expanded space,
equipped with modern broadcasting and technological facilities. The location close to the courts will
afford lawyers a welcoming place to connect in a
casual setting and to work before, in between, and
after court appearances.
I cannot wait to see the new classrooms, new technology, and in-house production studio combine
to expand the Bar's ability to deliver great CLE programming to more members. In one generation,
the Bar has gone from holding CLE programs in the
basement of the Bar's old building to hosting them
in person, by webinar, and on-demand - and now,
that hosting will be done from a beautiful, brandnew location. I'm excited to see the already strong
CLE experience become even better for faculty
and students alike.

at the Bar's new HQ. Check out how
it went at dcbar.org/news.
