Upcoming Events

We are still finalizing dates for our 2022-2023 Event Schedule. But as always, it’s jam-packed with CLEs, socials, and so much more. After overwhelming public support, we are excited to once again celebrate Constitution Day and hold our Student Art Contest in fall 2023!

To kick off our programming, we’re bringing back one of our most popular series: Chambers Lunches with Federal Judges. And the newest member of Southwest Florida’s Federal Bench—Judge Kyle Dudek—graciously agreed to host the first Chambers Lunch. What’s more, our first Happy Hour is just around the corner. For more information, see below. Please join us!
