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. The Section hosts 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 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.
