Annual Events

Throughout the year, RCBA sponsors numerous social, fundraiser, and community outreach events. These include the annual Judges’ Dinner, Memorials, Annual Meeting, Golf Tournament, Bench & Bar Benefit, and Holiday Party. Other events include monthly Happy Hours Hosted by the New Lawyers.


Judges’ Dinner

The Judges of Ramsey County showcase their talents in a variety show and dinner held each spring. The 2020 Judges' Dinner will be held on Thursday, March 26.



The RCBA Memorials are held each spring to honor local attorneys and judges that have passed in the previous year. The 2020 special session will be held on Friday, April 24.


Member Appreciation Day

The Member Appreciation Day is a free event for members, held each May. It includes free CLEs, free activities (such as professional head shots, marketing consultations, etc.) and a social gathering with appetizers and beverages of all sorts.


Golf Tournament

Held each summer, the annual Ramsey County Bar Foundation Golf Tournament is a fundraiser for the Foundation. The 2019 tournament was held at Keller Golf Course in July.


Families First Halloween Party

For over 20 years, RCBA volunteer attorneys organized the Families First Picnic in the summer for more than 200 children and their family members from economically disadvantaged St. Paul neighborhoods. In 2017, the Families First event changed to a Halloween Party serving the same St. Paul neighborhoods as the previous summer picnics. The Families First Halloween Party is held in late October at John A. Johnson Elementary.


Bench & Bar Benefit

The Bench & Bar Benefit, held in the fall of each year, is the major fundraiser for the Ramsey County Bar Foundation. Half of the money raised at the event is given directly to Southern Minnesota Regional Legal Services. The other half is awarded in grants to other law-related organizations. The 2019 event is Saturday, November 2 at the St. Paul Hotel.


Holiday Party

The RCBA Holiday Party is a social gathering to celebrate the season with friends and colleagues. This year's party will be on Thursday, December 12 at the Lexington. Reserve your tickets.


Happy Hours Hosted by the New Lawyers Section

Every month, the New Lawyers get together at various local bars. These events are a great way to meet colleagues and also to network with seasoned legal professionals.
