CHEYENNE – The Wyoming State Bar today announced that it will be hosting its 2022 Annual Meeting & Judicial Conference at the Best Western Downtown Casper Hotel in Casper, Wyoming, September 13-16, 2022. The meeting is a combined gathering of the Wyoming State Bar and the Wyoming Judiciary. Over 200 attorneys and judges are expected to be in attendance, while over 350 attorneys will join the conference virtually. This is the first in-person Annual Meeting the Bar has hosted since 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This year’s Annual Meeting & Judicial Conference will feature two full days of judicial education for District Court and Circuit Court judges throughout Wyoming. The conference will also offer three full days of quality educational programs for Wyoming lawyers.

The Bar is thrilled to have David Adler, award-winner author and lecturer from Idaho, as its keynote speaker for this year’s Annual Banquet. Adler will discuss the importance of defending American constitutionalism and the Rule of Law.

A recipient of teaching, writing and civic awards, Adler has lectured nationally and internationally, and published widely on the Constitution, presidential power and the Bill of Rights. He is the author of six books, including, most recently, The War Power in an Age of Terrorism, as well as more than 100 scholarly articles in the leading journals of his field.  He is currently writing a book on the landmark Supreme Court decision in Reed v. Reed, which had its origins in Idaho and transformed the law for American women.

Adler’s scholarly writings have been quoted by the U.S. Supreme Court, lower federal courts, the U.S. Attorney General, the White House Counsel, the Legal Adviser to the State Department, by Republicans and Democrats in both houses of Congress, as well as political scientists, historians and law professors. He has delivered more than 750 public lectures throughout Idaho and contributes op-ed pieces to newspapers across the nation, including a weekly column on the Constitution— “What Were They Thinking?” –for Wyoming newspapers.

A frequent commentator on state and national events, Adler’s lectures have aired on C-Span, and he has done interviews with reporters from the New York Times, Washington Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, Newsweek, National Review, The Nation Magazine, Mother Jones, Fox News, NPR, NBC, CNN and the BBC.

“Our Annual Meeting serves as a unique opportunity for Wyoming’s lawyers and judges to get together and not only learn and conduct business, but to also network Wyoming-style,” said Ken Barbe, Casper attorney and President of the Wyoming State Bar.
