BARRISTERS’ CORNER


By Kathryn Pietrolungo

Judges’ Pizza Night

The Annual Judges Pizza Night is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 15 at 5:30 p.m. at Cafe Fiore in Ventura. This event is only open to judges and Barristers. Last year, we had around 20 judges attend and we expect the same number, if not more, this year. This event gives newer attorneys a chance to meet with judges in a social environment. In connection with Pizza Night, the Barristers joined with the Salvation Army to raise funds to feed the homeless on Thanksgiving. Please see Rachel Coleman’s article for more information.

CYLA Seeks Board Members

Mr. Carrington is “very knowledgeable. Insurance companies respect his opinion. Extensive trial experience (ABOTA), excellent mediator, fair, objective arbitrator. Extraordinarily capable and for It’s that time of the year when the State Bar of California looks for volunteers to share their expertise, energy, and commitment in service of the State Bar. The California Young Lawyers Association (CYLA) is the nation’s largest association of newer lawyers.  The association advocates issues important to our  membership before the State Bar’s Board of Governors. Serving on the CYLA Board is an excellent opportunity for newer lawyers to get involved.

In 2012, the Board of Governors will appoint seven members to the CYLA Board. Applicants must be “young attorneys,” defined as attorneys in their first five years of practice, or 36 years of age or younger. The deadline to apply is Feb. 1.  See http://cc.calbar.ca.gov/ for the application.
