The Historical Society of the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey has been celebrating and preserving the fascinating 220-year history of our District Court, the second oldest in the Nation, for twenty years. We continue, as actively as ever, becoming a model for historical societies throughout the Country.
The Society has created and hosted numerous programs commemorating the history of the Court, as well as actively taking the lead in restoring and highlighting historic Courthouse artwork. We are also proud to have commissioned a comprehensive history of the Court written by a local scholar, which is believed to be the only history of a District Court in the Country.
The Society provides many opportunities for camaraderie between the Bench and Bar. These include our annual judicial reception for members, our Chairman's Ball and numerous other events throughout the year. These are but a few of the many activities of the Society.
If you are not already a member, please join us. It will enhance your knowledge and enjoyment of practicing law in this historic District.
