Summer Series: United States Magistrate Judges

July 11, 2019
10:30 am - 1:00 pm

Bryan Simpson U.S. Courthouse
300 N. Hogan Street
Jacksonville FL 32202

Welcome to federal court! The Summer Series is designed for law students working in Jacksonville and nearby areas. The goal is to bring to life much of what is studied in law school. Information about all eight events is available here.

In your criminal procedure class, you learn that for the police to lawfully execute a search warrant, the warrant must be issued by a “neutral and detached magistrate.” In this session, you will observe a United States Magistrate Judge oversee a preliminary criminal proceeding. Then join magistrate judges for lunch to discuss the vast scope of duties they perform to help ensure that both criminal and civil federal cases proceed smoothly.

This event will be held at the Bryan Simpson United States Courthouse, Courtroom TBD (5th floor) for arguments and Clerk’s Office Conference Room (9th floor) for lunch.

This event is limited to 40 students. Please RSVP by using the below form.

If you have questions regarding this event, you are welcome to email Katharine Roth at

Also, a few reminders: All Summer Series events are free. All events require business attire. You must have a valid i.d. to enter the courthouse. Each event requires a reservation, spaces are limited, and most events “sell out.” Be mindful that if you make a reservation, a seat will be saved for you and food will be bought for you. If you cannot attend, immediately contact Katharine Roth at (904) 549-1950 so your seat can be given to someone else.

Thank you and we look forward to having you join us!
