The Florida Bar Speakers Bureau
The Speakers Bureau promotes the 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.
Request a Speaker
The Florida Bar Speakers Bureau offers schools, businesses, community groups and organizations the opportunity to have experienced attorneys speak about the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, courts and the judicial branch, the role of lawyers in the justice system, the significance of Florida’s constitution, and threats to the U.S. justice system.
Volunteer attorneys are also available to give presentations on such topics as advanced directives, family law, consumer protection, the First Amendment and many other legal topics.
There is no fee for this service. For assistance, call 850-561-5701 or send us an email.
