The Association has established a new Committee -- the Friedman Memorial Committee -- to honor the memory, spirit and accomplishments of Judge Daniel M. Friedman. Judge Friedman had a long and distinguished career as a Judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (1982-2011), Chief Judge of the United States Court of Claims (1978-82), and a senior appellate attorney in the Office of the Solicitor General of the United States and an attorney with the U.S. Department of Justice. He was an esteemed federal jurist, a leading appellate advocate for the United States government, an extraordinary teacher of and mentor to his judicial law clerks and all who crossed his professional path. Judge Friedman was also a dedicated supporter of the Federal Circuit Bar Association.
The Judge Daniel M. Friedman Appellate Advocacy Lecture
Within the Association, the Committee will pursue a prestigious annual lecture in the field of appellate advocacy, which will be known as the Judge Daniel M. Friedman Appellate Advocacy Lecture (the “Lecture”). The Lecture will be held at a judicial, academic or other appropriate venue, together with an informal reception. The speaker at the Lecture will be a prominent jurist, practitioner, academic or other person in a related field. The Committee would discuss and develop recommendations for the Lecture each year, and event details would be subject to the usual approval, timing, and support practices within the Association.
More information about the Lectures and a recording of the first one on November 16, 2012 can be found here.
