Joseph R. Froetschel, Esq.
"After so many remote meetings and hearings in the past two-years, it was wonderful to see so many members, judges and sponsors back in-person at the 2022 Bench-Bar Conference. As we look back fondly on the pictures and memories from the Summer, the Bench-Bar Committee has already begun planning the 59th edition of the Conference. It is my honor and privilege to serve as the Chair of the Bench-Bar Committee and we have so many great ideas and hope to incorporate some exciting new features to complement all the timeless Bench-Bar traditions: interesting and informative CLEs, collegiality, networking and fun. More information will be posted to this page as we finalize the schedule, speakers, programs and activities, so check back often! I am looking forward to seeing everyone for another great conference."
What Bench-Bar Is All About
It’s one of the Pittsburgh Legal Community's most popular traditions. And for good reason. The Allegheny County Bar Association’s Bench-Bar Conference is the region’s premier gathering of legal professionals. For more than five decades, lawyers and judges from the Pittsburgh area have congregated at Seven Springs Mountain Resort for a few days of networking, education, socialization and entertainment.
Countdown to Bench-Bar
For more than half a century, the Bench-Bar Conference
has been the premier gathering of lawyers and judges
in Western Pennsylvania.
