Attorney Lounges

The Northern District of California provides attorney lounges in the San Francisco (18th floor), Oakland (4th floor) and San Jose (1st floor) courthouses for the use of attorneys practicing in the court, i.e., attorneys currently admitted to practice in the Northern District of California and those with a current pro hac vice order.

Non-attorneys, including unrepresented parties, may not use the attorney lounges unless they have received written permission from the judge presiding over their case to use the lounge on specified dates and at specified times, for a case currently pending in the district. The non-attorney must be able to produce the written order upon request when using the attorney lounge. 

The court's attorney lounges are open during regular building hours
