Federal Practice

Section Focus

The Federal Practice Section is committed to providing programming of interest to those in the Bar who practice in federal court or desire to learn more about federal court practice. During the 2013-2014 fiscal year, the Section hosted luncheons featuring judges from the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals and the Southern District of Texas as well as prominent practitioners with national reputations.

The next Section luncheon will be held on Monday, September 22, 2014, at noon at the Houston Club, featuring District Court Judge Kenneth M. Hoyt, Bankruptcy Court Judge Marvin Isgur, and Magistrate Judge Nancy Johnson of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas. The topic will be “Practice Tips for the Federal Courts.” The Section provides luncheon programs on a bimonthly basis and welcomes members and newcomers to attend.

The Section participates in other social and service-oriented projects, such as co-sponsorship in the HBA’s Annual Holiday Party for the Judiciary and the HBA’s LegalLine.
