Broward breakfast promotes professionalism

In an effort to promote professionalism and to help familiarize newly licensed attorneys with Broward County’s local legal practice, the 17th Judicial Circuit Court, in conjunction with the Professionalism Committee of the Broward County Bar Association, hosted the First Annual New Attorney Orientation Breakfast recently in Ft. Lauderdale.

A panel consisting of both circuit and county court judges, as well as local practicing attorneys, discussed the various protocols and division procedures within the 17th Circuit, hoping to help the new Broward attorneys navigate the local practice of law. Rounding out the event were representatives from several local voluntary bar associations.

For the new attorneys wanting to get a lay of the land and observe trials and hearings in progress, an extended tour of the main courthouse commenced after the breakfast.
