19th Annual Judges’ Dinner – May 9, 2018

Each year, the Austin IPLA organizes an annual judges’ dinner to honor federal judges. Usually, a judge from the Federal Circuit is the keynote speaker. Past locations have included the Driskill Hotel, the Stephen F. Austin Hotel, and the Hotel Van Zandt.

This year, our dinner celebrating 2017 will be held at the Hotel Van Zandt on May 9, 2018. The Austin IPLA is honored to welcome the Honorable Timothy Belcher Dyk of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit as our keynote speaker. As in the past, the judges and our sponsors will be invited to an exclusive reception held prior to the dinner.

Please join us this year for the event. If you or your law firm is interested in sponsoring the event, please reach out to one of the Board members.
