This year’s conference will be held on Thursday, March 22, 2018. This lively professional and educational forum for attorneys and jurists is always an opportunity to gather together and discuss issues of mutual interest.

Our annual Spring event provides varied and practical training to members of the federal bar, including continuing legal education credits for attorneys licensed in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. Each year the Chief Judge of the District delivers an annual “State of the Court System” address.

Our first Judicial Conference began concurrently with the inception of the AFBNJ in 1976. The first Judicial Conference was convened in Princeton and entitled “What’s Your Beef?” That daylong conference featured a panel comprised of every judge in the District, each of whom fielded questions and complaints about federal practice and procedures. Then tables were turned. Later in the day, their roles reversed, lawyers faced similar questioning by the judges.

Over the years, the Association of the Federal Bar of New Jersey’s Judicial Conferences have maintained their reputation among the Garden State legal community as one of the premier professional events on the calendar.
