Benchmarks is basically civics education for adults – presented in an engaging and fun format that leaves participants wanting more.
Overviews and supporting materials for all Benchmarks activities are available online.
They are grouped into three categories: Constitution and the Bill of Rights; Courts and the Judicial Branch; and Special Topics.
Attorneys who become trained in Benchmarks — by attending a seminar — are eligible to earn CLE credits.
Presenters can earn one ethics credit hour for each presentation for up to three presentations in a three-year reporting period.
Speakers Bureau volunteers are encouraged to contact civic groups in their communities that might be interested in these presentations.
Questions regarding Benchmarks should be directed to: Susannah Lyle at firstname.lastname@example.org or (850) 561-5669.
