Every year the Association of Legal Professionals hosts the lavish Juristen- Ball in the heart of beautiful Vienna. This year marks the 70th anniversary of the association hosting this marvellous event, which is set to take place on 10 February 2018 in the historic state rooms of the Imperial Palace (Hofburg Vienna). Beautiful ball gowns, marvellous music and smiling faces all around, that is how the annual Juristen-Ball is best described. For those of us who are secretly dreaming about a Cinderella-like experience, this is the place to be. The Juristen-Ball starts straight away with melodies by Strauss to get the dancers into the right mood. 150 years ago Johann Strauss (father) dedicated the ‘Aeaciden Waltz’, Josef Strauss the ‘Lock Polka’ and Johann Strauss (son) the ‘Juristen-Ball Polka (fast)’ to the legal professionals.
