Local judges, practitioners, summer associates, and law students convened at the Park Ultra Lounge on July 23, 2015, at the 23rd Annual Summer Associates Reception. The event honors the Diversity Fellowship Program and its participants. The Program is a coordinated effort between the Sacramento County Bar Association, local law firms, Pacific McGeorge School of Law, and King Hall to promote and increase diversity in area law firms. The Program provides local minority and disadvantaged students an opportunity to work in a law firm between the first and second year of law school. Attendees enjoyed the sophisticated setting, an assortment of sliders, appetizers from Cafeteria 15L, and selections from the bar. On behalf of the Barristers’ board, we thank our Platinum and Gold Sponsors, as well as participating firms, for their continued support.

The Barristers officially kicked off their action-packed summer programming with a social mixer at Hot Italian on June 25, 2015. With over 100 attendees, many new networking connections were made between current and potential club members. Attendees were also entered into a drawing for an iPad as part of a summer raffle to encourage event attendance, courtesy of LIT Services.

Members of the Barristers’ Club and area attorneys packed the courtroom of the Sacramento County Superior Court Law & Motion Department on July 13, 2015 for the annual Law & Motion Seminar. Judge David Brown and Judge Raymond Cadei lead an active discussion about best practices in law and motion. Three days later, the Barristers hosted a second July event—the first ever Regulation of Fish & Wildlife MCLE Seminar. This newly minted MCLE seminar was led by two Washington D.C. attorneys from the Association of Fish & Wildlife Agencies, Carol Bambery and Parks Gilbert, as well as Ann Malcolm from the California Department of Fish & Wildlife. The seminar was followed by refreshments and networking at Weintraub Tobin.

Watch the Calendar for Upcoming Events
