Annual Judges Dinner – September 27, 2023

AIPLA organizes a judges’ dinner to honor federal judges. Usually, one of the judges from the Federal Circuit is the keynote speaker. The event typically is held at a location in downtown Austin. Past locations have included the Driskill Hotel, Stephen F. Austin Hotel, and Austin Club. Members, non-members, and guests are encouraged to attend. In addition, groups, such as law firms, can purchase an entire table. Please join us this year for the event.

This year, the dinner will restart the AIPLA tradition after our 2020 dinner was canceled due to COVID-19. The 2023 Austin IPLA Judges’ Dinner will be held on Wednesday night, September 27, 2023. The Austin IPLA is honored to welcome retired District Court Judge Lee Yeakel, who recently retired. Join us for a celebration of Judge Yeakel’s retirement and his contributions to the judiciary and greater AIPLA community. 

We are grateful to our sponsors for this dinner. Thank you for your continued support of AIPLA.
