San Diego is fortunate to have a judiciary that is active in the legal community and bar associations. Lawyers Club is especially fortunate to count so many members of the judiciary as strong supporters of Lawyers Club and our mission. We are proud to host the annual Bench-Bar Luncheon on February 20, 2020. This event provides an excellent opportunity for our members to interact with our judges. I especially encourage our younger members who may have little experience in the courtroom to introduce yourselves to our approachable and respected members of the bench.

We are also very excited that our annual Bench-Bar Luncheon will include the following speakers: our Superior Court Presiding Judge Lorna Alksne, only the third women to serve in that role and the Hon. Judith McConnell, the Administrative Presiding Justice of the Fourth Appellate District and the first women to serve as presiding judge. Justice McConnell is also a Lawyers Club founding mother. Join us for an engaging conversation with our local judges and experience why the best city to practice in is San Diego.
