I really hope you are able to attend. Magistrate Judge Michael Hegarty is an outstanding speaker. Judge Hegarty was able to get approval for CLS to also use the jury assembly room at the Federal Courthouse for this very special luncheon. If you have ever been involved with the Faculty of Federal Advocates, this is where they meet for their brown bag luncheons. If you are not used to going into the federal courthouse, be aware that you cannot bring in a cell phone with a camera unless you are an attorney and have already been to the clerk’s office and obtained a “Green Card” (wherein you fill out a form as an attorney and they give you a green business card to present to security). Therefore, if you do not have a green card, be sure to leave your camera-cell phone in your car!
