Welcome from the Honorable Patricia E. Campbell-Smith, Chief Judge

Greetings. On behalf of the United States Court of Federal Claims, I am pleased to welcome you to our new website.

The Court of Federal Claims continues to be well served by the support of a distinguished Advisory Council and an exemplary Bar Association on issues and events of importance to the court. Joining and participating in the United States Court of Federal Claims Bar Association allows members of the court's bar to become more familiar with the court, members of the bench, and other practitioners.

The Court of Federal Claims Bar Association is instrumental in the sponsorship of two of the court's signature annual events. The first upcoming event is Law Day. The American Bar Association's chosen theme for Law Day 2014 is "American Democracy and the Rule of Law: Why Every Vote Matters." The court will hold its Law Day observance on Monday, April 28, 2014, at the Willard Hotel. The speaker will be Assistant Attorney General Tony West. To register, please click on the "Events" tab above.

The second event will be the court's 27th Annual Judicial Conference, to be held this fall. Planning is now in the works for an event in early November 2014. Please stay tuned for more details as they develop.

To draw your attention to the court's recent and upcoming events, I will update this greeting periodically. Thank you for your interest in the United States Court of Federal Claims.

Date: March 18, 2014
