Past Brownbag 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 if you are interested in being placed on the brown-bag lunch distribution list.
