Event Overview

At the height of the Vienna ball season, the Lawyers' Ball (Juristenball) is celebrated at Vienna's famous imperial palace (Hofburg).

It has become a 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.

Please find the details on how to join us in the section "Practical Information".


KWR Karasek Wietrzyk Rechtsanwälte is supporting the pre-ball drinks and food at Bar Campari as sponsor.


While former AIJA members are explicitly invited to join and all current and former AIJA members are invited to bring partners and friends along, this event is not intended for participants with no connection to AIJA.
