On July 25, 2008, the Chief Judge of the Court of Federal Claims, Edward Damich, will be joined by Judge George Miller on a panel to discuss: the court’s mission and varied jurisdictional grants; the court’s docket and; practical tips for young attorneys practicing before the court. The event will conclude with a brief “Ask the Judges” session on practice before the court. Judges Damich and Miller will be joined on the panel by both government and private practitioners, who will address several of the different substantive areas of practice before the court.
The event is free and light refreshments will be served. Attendees are encouraged to bring along a “brown bag” lunch if they so desire. This event is aimed at law clerks, summer associates, and young lawyers interested in the court’s diverse practice areas (i.e., government contracts, Constitutional claims, tax refunds, Indian claims, patent and copyright matters, and vaccine injury claims). The program will be held from 12:00-1:30 p.m. on Friday, July 25th, in the Tayloe House, which is adjacent to the National Courts Building, 717 Madison Place, Washington, D.C.
Firms and government offices are encouraged to send their summer interns and associates along with one or more young lawyers to the event. Please RSVP with the number of attendees to email@example.com.
