Part I: View from the Bench (1.5 hours CLE credit in Enhanced Ethics). Esteemed members of the Bench from all Delaware Courts will discuss best practices, preferences, practical instruction, and pet peeves. Plenty of tips and insights, plus opinions on inappropriate conduct will be offered for new and seasoned attorneys — for both in and out of the courtroom. Know thy judge! Part II: View from the Bar (1.5 hours CLE credit in Enhanced Ethics). To help meet the challenges of the future, under the direction of Chief Justice Leo E. Strine, Jr., extensive interviews were conducted with over 100 members of the Bar to give them the opportunity to provide confidential input about how the court system is doing. All Delaware Courts were covered by the survey. This seminar will discuss the findings from the in-person interviews plus some of the results of an electronic poll that will be sent to the entire Bar prior to the Conference. The Court asked for your opinions using questions that ranged from logistical matters to work-life balance. Now is your chance to hear how Delaware Courts are faring and to hear about how your responses will be used to develop a policy agenda for the future! DSB05152015
