Brush With the Law at Columbus Bench and Bar

A full house of judges and lawyers attended our keynote  address yesterday at the Columbus Bench and Bar Conference. The purpose of bench and bar conferences is to improve professionalism and the effective administration of judicial process.  Judges and lawyers, in an informal and interactive setting speak and listen to ways we can improve  our system of justice.

The keynote spoke about the common ground between art and law, the importance of inspiration in both, and about how we as lawyers can help lead public education and dialogue about law in our American democracy.

The Columbus Art Museum has in its collection “Soda Jerk” by Norman Rockwell, depicting a young employee at the local ice cream parlor who seems to have convinced 4 admirers (including dog) that he’s not much of a jerk.
