Greetings. On behalf of the United States Court of Federal Claims, welcome to our website.

On May 12, 2015, the court and the Court of Federal Claims Bar Association partnered for our annual Law Day observance luncheon at the Willard Intercontinental Hotel here in Washington, DC. The luncheon provided a wonderful opportunity for members of our bench and bar to gather together to share a meal and to honor this year's Law Day theme, "Magna Carta: Symbol of Freedom Under Law." Keynote speaker Professor A.E. Dick Howard, White Burkett Miller Professor of Law and Public Affairs at the University of Virginia School of Law, was both entertaining and illuminating, demonstrating the enduring legacy of Magna Carta on American Democracy. Thank you to all who were able to join us.

Also on May 12, the court's Advisory Council met to discuss various issues affecting practice before our court. One of the developing issues discussed was how the court's use of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) procedures can be improved. It is our goal to introduce a new ADR policy in the fall at the court's annual judicial conference. Read more.
