Special Delivery!

Debate, Dialogue, Discussion, Discourse, Deliberation… Lawyers love these “D” words.  The differences between them are subtle, but meaningful, and not merely semantics.  The underlying theme, however, is the recognition that there exist differing viewpoints, on virtually everything, and those variances need to be explored.  We attorneys pride ourselves on being open and informed, which can only be accomplished through endless debate and discussion.

Because we know our members’ Dominant Desire for Discussion, the Vermont Bar Association is Determined to Deliver! 

The Attorney General is defined as the ‘chief’ lawyer or ‘chief’ law enforcement officer for the State.  We understand that lawyers, in particular, will want to be conversant regarding the choice for this crucial legal position.  This year, the Attorney General race is contested, and who better to host a debate between the chief candidates than your association of lawyers?  

              JOIN US on Thursday, September 8, 2016 
        at 3:00pm at the Statehouse Pavilion

in the Auditorium in Montpelier for a debate between the two main-party candidates for Attorney General.  VBA Executive Director Teri Corsones will be moderating the discussion between Deb Bucknam and T.J. Donovan on issues that matter most to our membership!

Light refreshments to be served.

If you’d like to submit a question, which may be utilized (without attribution) at the debate, please send it to jeb@vtbar.org by August 31, 2016. 

But wait, there are more Discussions to Deliver! Save the Date.

 The Vermont Bar Association is also proud to host a “Gubernatorial Dialogue” for the three candidates for Vermont Governor on Thursday, October 13, 2016 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. at our 138th Annual Meeting at Lake Morey Resort in Fairlee. The candidates include, alphabetically, Bill Lee (Liberty Union), Sue Minter (Democrat) and Phil Scott (Republican). Each candidate will give a brief presentation about issues affecting the justice system, and then will field questions from the audience. Come meet the candidates, and ask them your questions about issues relating to our justice system in Vermont.
