What is Food Court?
The Food Court events are virtual luncheons where new attorneys and law students will have the opportunity to gather and meet judges from across the state in a more informal setting. During the luncheons, the panel of judges will discuss various topics related to the practice of law, especially that pertaining to representation of clients before the court. The judges will offer insight and advice directed to new attorneys who are beginning to represent clients in the courtroom and advocate before judges.
