Summer Series: Federal Court Decorum and Business Etiquette

July 11, 2018
10:30 am - 2:00 pm

The Ed Austin Building
311 West Monroe Street
Jacksonville FL 32202

Join U.S. District Judge Harvey E. Schlesinger, U.S. Magistrate Judge James R. Klindt, criminal defense attorney Henry M. Coxe, III, and civil attorney Michael R. Freed for a presentation on courtroom decorum. The decorum presentation will be held at 10:30 a.m. at the Ed Austin Building, Ceremonial Courtroom. (From 1933 until 2003, the Ed Austin Building, now occupied by the State Attorney’s Office for the Fourth Judicial Circuit, was Jacksonville’s United States Courthouse and Post Office. The Ed Austin Building is located at 311 West Monroe Street.)

Then, attend a lesson on business dining etiquette with professional etiquette coach Kaye Simonetta. The etiquette lunch includes a plated, three-course lunch at The River Club beginning at noon; therefore, advance registration is required and we cannot accommodate walk-ins. Space is limited to 25 people. 

Reminders for every Summer Series event: Please arrive early to allow time for security screenings. Bring your driver’s license or other government-issued identification. The Court has granted a special exception to its no-electronics policy for these events, but all devices must be completely off in the courtrooms. The federal courthouse does not have dedicated parking. Metered street parking and paid garages are available near the courthouse.
