Wildfires in Northern Nevada have reportedly caused the Nevada Legislature website to go down just when many changes impacting the courts are going into effect. The good news is that attorneys who are looking to get the top information on legislation impacting the courts can get it at the Tuesday, July 11 Civil Bench-Bar Meeting. Judge Gloria Sturman will present a summary of the changes at the July 11 Bench-Bar meeting at noon in courtroom 10D.

The June Nevada Supreme Court decisions will also be reviewed at the Bench-Bar. Attorneys are encouraged to bring up other topics or questions they may have to be addressed. The Civil Bench-Bar meetings are a great opportunities for members of the Bar Association to get important information on the courts, network and grab a bite to eat.
