The AFBNJ, launched in 1971, was established to allow judges, attorneys in the private bar, and federal law enforcement attorneys to work together to enhance and strengthen professional relationships through dialogue, assistance, and training. For nearly 50 years the AFBNJ has pursued those goals through annual meetings, receptions, and conferences that serve to sustain and enhance the strong ties between the federal Bench and Bar in New Jersey.
