It’s a real tradition. For more than a century, the Toulouse Bar Association has organized its traditional eloquence competition. Called the Conference, it is reserved for lawyers from the pink city who took the oath less than five years ago. The latter clash “on offbeat subjects where legal notions and philosophical debates rub shoulders”, indicates the Order of Lawyers of the Toulouse Bar.

This year, the Secretaries of the Conference, winners of the previous edition of the competition, chose the following three topics: “gold and manners”, “is science infused? » and « can the soft sentence hurt? “. If this eloquence contest is reserved for young Toulouse lawyers, everyone can attend. It is actually open to the general public.

The first round will take place on October 17 and 19 from 5:30 p.m. A jury will be responsible for deciding between the candidates. This will be composed of the master president Pierre Dunac, the vice-president master Frédéric Langlois, members of the Council of the Order and former laureates. The appointment is given in the Grand’Chambre of the Court of Appeal of Toulouse. The entry is made by the judicial court of Toulouse.

After this first round, the top 10 selected candidates will face each other in the final. It will take place on November 16 from 5:30 p.m. in the same place. Candidates will be given new subjects. In the final, four winners will be chosen. These latter will receive the title of Secretaries of the Young Bar Conference of Toulouse. They will represent the Toulouse Bar at meetings of the various national and international bars.
