Signature Events

BAMSL hosts a number of events throughout the year. Below is more information about our biggest and most popular events.
 

Law Day

Law Day, held annually at the beginning of May, is a national day set aside to celebrate the rule of law. Law Day underscores how law and the legal process contribute to the freedoms that all Americans share. Law Day also provides an opportunity to recognize the role of courts in democracy and the importance of jury service to maintaining the integrity of the courts.

Every year, BAMSL kicks off the start of our bar year with a Law Day Celebration and Annual Meeting. During the celebration, an awards ceremony is held, the incoming Board of Governors is sworn in, and a luncheon is held featuring a keynote speaker.
 

Bench & Bar Conference

Bench & Bar is an annual conference held at Camden on the Lake Resort at the Lake of the Ozarks. The three-day event includes CLEs on a broad range of topics, a golf tournament, exclusive receptions, entertainment and parties. It is the perfect atmosphere to socialize and network with fellow attorneys and judges.
