Upcoming Events

  • Tuesday, April 13, 2021 - 12:00

    On April 13, 2021 via Zoom conference, the DCBA program committee is thrilled to present a program by four of the *NEW* Dane County Judges! Judges Mario White, Jacob Frost, Chris Taylor, and David Conway will be giving their impressions and requests for practice in their respective courtrooms. In the past year, the judiciary has had to cope with poor phone connections, exhibit debacles, and scantily clad zoom parties (not to mention cat filters in other jurisdictions).

  • Tuesday, April 27, 2021 - 12:00

    On Tuesday, April 27, via Zoom, Lindsay Marty will give a presentation to provide novices a guide for law firm marketing. This presentation is valuable for those just starting their practice or are looking to revamp their digital footprint. She will go over the basics of digital marketing in 2021 including search engine optimization, reputation management, branding, content creation, lead generation and, of course, social media marketing!
