Attend the 15th Annual Judicial & Legislative Reception on Wednesday, May 23


In 1998 the Judicial and Legislative Reception began as an opportunity to recognize and honor those who serve the people of our region in their capacities on the bench or in an elected position.

The reception features food and wine from across the Commonwealth of Virginia. Each year the event continues to be a great success. This year’s JLR will be no different, showcasing several Virginia wineries and offering appetizers and desserts chosen to complement the wine selections.

The event has been characterized as “the premier legal event in Northern Virginia” with attorneys, judges, legislators and Mason Law alumni looking forward to this annual gathering. In each of the past several years, we have seen nearly 400 people honor us as guests.

Governors, members of Congress, state legislators, and federal and state court judges from Virginia and the District of Columbia have attended the JLR in past years.

We look forward to your joining us as a sponsor and a guest at this wonderful event.

Plan to join us on May 23! Doors will open at 5:45 p.m. for the 6:00 p.m. event, which will run until 8:30 in the evening.
