Benchmarks

Request a Speaker on Benchmarks (Adult Civic Education) for your group!

Benchmarks

“Benchmarks: Raising the Bar on Civics Education” is Florida Bar program that offers attorneys activities they can use to talk about government and the courts when they are invited to speak to adult civic and community groups. This is a critical mission for The Florida Bar. An informed public is the best defense of a vigorous democracy, the rule of law and a fair and impartial judiciary. Overviews and supporting materials for all Benchmarks activities are available online. They are grouped into three categories: Constitution and the Bill of RightsCourts and the Judicial Branch; and Special Topics. Attorneys who become trained in Benchmarks — by watching the webinar or 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.
