Annual Seminars

Bench Bar Conference

The Dayton Bar Association Bench Bar Conference is the largest legal conference of the year in the Miami Valley, attracting over 200 attorneys and judges throughout the region. Held each November, the Bench Bar Conference has a loyal following and a great reputation as one of the most valuable CLE seminars offered in the region.  The Dayton legal community is very fortunate to have such a positive working relationship between these two groups and the Bench Bar Conference reinforces that positive bond. Multiple breakout sessions are offered and provide informative topics in different areas of practice and include legal and court updates.

Save the Date! The next DBA Bench Bar Conference will be Friday, November 3, 2017 at Sinclair Community College, Building 12.
