Constitution Day Luncheon 2015

On September 17, 2015, the Jacksonville Chapter of the Federal Bar Association hosted our annual Constitution Day event. This year our CLE program was “Madison’s Avenue: The Rough Road to the Bill of Rights” presented by the Honorable Timothy J. Corrigan, United States District Judge. Over 130 members and guests enjoyed the educational and entertaining program, getting a behind the scenes look at James Madison\’s significant contributions to the creation of the Bill of Rights. At the end of the program, we were treated to special surprise as Judge Corrigan unveiled a long lost bronze plaque of the Bill of Rights from the old courthouse. The plaque will soon be proudly displayed in the current courthouse. The Jacksonville Financial News & Daily Record article about the luncheon is available online here.

Our mission is to strengthen the federal legal system and administration of justice by serving the interests and the needs of all of our members, as well as their clients, employers, and the public at large.
