Orthodox Christian Attorney Conference – October 2018

OCAC – 12/9/18

Orthodox Christian Attorney Conference
Hilton Clearwater Beach, FL, USA

Friday, October, 12 • 7:00 pm to Saturday, October 13 • 6:00 pm


What does our Orthodox faith have to do with the practice of law? What does it mean to live out God’s grace in our careers? How do we properly steward our hearts and minds in the legal profession?

Join us for the second national gathering of Orthodox Christian attorneys to explore these questions and more. This event is a chance for fellow Orthodox attorneys to build relationships across jurisdictions and learn how to serve our Lord together through our profession.

Participants are welcome to attend the Orthodox event only or the entire Christian Legal Society conference. Discount available to attend both. See registration for ticketing options. Contact us for information about room sharing.
