The Chester Bedell Memorial Luncheon is an annual event hosted by the Trial Lawyers Section of The Florida Bar in partnership with the Chester Bedell Foundation; an independent foundation that seeks to recognize and encourage lawyers who are committed to public service. The annual luncheon includes a lecture from a prominent keynote speaker on “The Independence of the American Lawyer”. The luncheon is attended by attendees of the Teachers Law Symposium, the Chester Bedell Mock Trial Competition, and experienced judges and attorneys.
Each lecture is preserved in written form and available upon request. Lectures from recent years are included below.
