Congratulations to our very own Judge James for receiving the “Outstanding Chapter Leader Award” by the Federal Bar Association at its 2022 National Convention in Charleston, South Carolina!!

  • Brown Bag Lunches
The FBA offers brown bag (bring your own) lunches with our federal judges. These lunches take place in our judges chambers’ and are limited to small groups (usually 15 or fewer attendees). These events really allow judges and practitioners to get acquainted, discuss best practices and preferences, and discuss aspects of federal practice and the legal profession that interest the group.

The FBA is incredibly thankful to the judges who have already hosted brown bag events in their chambers. Contact Robert Calbi  r.calbi@gmail.com if you are interested in being placed on the brown-bag lunch distribution list.
