Event Overview

After a two year break (due to the Covid-19 pandemic), the famous Lawyers' Ball (Juristenball), which is celebrated every year at the height of the Vienna ball season, is finally back! It will take place at Vienna's famous imperial palace (Hofburg) on 18 February 2023 under the motto “La Dolce Vita – We celebrate life”.

To celebrate, we want to revive the tradition that AIJA members and friends visit this unique event together and enjoy a night of splendour, music and dance. All AIJA members (and of course also former members!) are welcome to join us and to bring their partners and friends along.

For those worried about their dancing skills, we will organise a dance class in the afternoon before the ball. Join us and you will see that learning the most important dances to prepare for the ball can be great fun.

But even if you are not that much into dancing it is worth visiting this unique event to enjoy the imperial setting and the orchestras and bands playing in the magnificent ballrooms. 

How to join us

Please book your ticket(s) directly on the ball-website here. The standard ticket price is EUR 175. You can also book a seat (only possible to book two or four seats) at a table, if you wish. Please remember to print the ticket(s) and bring them to the ball.

The dance class will be held on the day of the ball (18 February 2023) from 13:00 to 15:00 at Tanzschule Dorner, Favoritenstraße 20, 1040 Vienna. The participation fee will be EUR 24 per person.

We will then meet for pre-ball drinks at “Palmenhaus” (1010 Vienna, Burggarten 1) from 18:30 till 21:00 and have a short walk of approx. 550m through a historical part of Vienna’s city center to the venue of the ball together. For more information on the spectacular venue and the menu please see their website (consumption to be paid individually).

Please confirm your attendance to Clara Gordon and Philip Rosenauer per email. Please let them know if you would like to join the dance class and/or the pre-ball drinks.
