Request a Speaker on Benchmarks (Adult Civic Education) for your group!
“Benchmarks: Raising the Bar on Civics Education” offers attorneys presentations about government and the courts that they can use when speaking to adult civic 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 are online, grouped by: Constitution and the Bill of Rights; Courts and the Judicial Branch; and Special Topics. Attorneys who take the training – by watching the webinar or attending seminars that are held locally and in conjunction with Bar meetings – are eligible to make Benchmarks presentations. Presenters can earn one ethics credit hour for each presentation for up to three presentations in a three-year reporting period.
The Speakers Bureau exists to promote among Florida citizens an understanding of our constitutionally based system of government, knowledge about the justice system and an appreciation of the role lawyers play to protect the rights of all.
There is no fee for this service!
