Save the Date: October 29, 2019 United States District Court Bench/Bar Conference

SAVE THE DATE: October 29, 2019.

The United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas, Houston/Galveston Divisions, will host the District's second Bench/Bar Conference on Tuesday, October 29, 2019, downtown Houston near the Federal Courthouse. The day-long Conference will bring together the federal trial judges and federal court practitioners in the Houston and Galveston Divisions. The Conference will focus on how electronic communications, electronically stored information of all kinds, and artificial intelligence impact and can be used in legal practice — to find key material, get the information into evidence, and assist the Court in deciding cases. There will be three plenary sessions of general interest, as well as four civil and four criminal breakout sessions. Ample opportunities are scheduled for attorneys and judges to visit during breakfast, lunch and a post-program social hour included in the Conference.

The Conference is open to attorneys admitted to the bar of the Southern District of Texas or who have pending applications to practice in this District. Remember to check that your S.D. Texas District Court bar admission is current, or make a timely application for admission, if you want to attend. Registration is anticipated to open in September. Further details will be announced as available.

We hope you will join us at the Conference on October 29th.

Chief Judge
