The purpose of the Club, when it was originally
formed, was to encourage among its members social intercourse
and a free discussion of matters affecting lawyers; elevating
the standard of professional ethics, aiding in all movements
looking toward the prompt and efficient administration of
justice, the promotion of legislation for that purpose,
and the maintenance of a club house and library for the
use of members.
Today the Club functions as a professional organization which sponsors three
informal cocktail receptions for the judges of various Pennsylvania courts and
the members of the federal bench sitting in Philadelphia.
Historically, the fall reception is in honor of the Philadelphia Court of Common
Pleas and the Philadelphia Municipal Court. Generally there is a fall reception
honoring one or more of the appellate courts. The spring reception honors the
judges of the Federal bench including the judges of the Third Circuit, judges
of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Bankruptcy Court, and the federal magistrates.
These receptions provide an informal venue for members of the bench and bar to
meet and become better acquainted outside of the demands of a formal legal proceeding.
These informal receptions are a positive way to permit members of the bench and
bar to interact.
