Wine and Cheese Mixer
On August 22, the legal community turned out for the Barristers Board’s Annual Wine and Cheese Mixer, where experienced and new attorneys could chat while sampling a variety of beer (on tap!) and delicious hors d’oeuvres supplied by Anacapa Brewing Company, plus wines and cheese provided by Paradise Pantry. The event was held in the beautiful courtyard of Ferguson Case Orr Paterson LLP.
Judges’ Pizza Night
Many new faces were spotted at Café Fiore September 19 for Judges’ Pizza Night. Pepperdine graduates anxiously awaiting bar exam results mingled with 12 Superior Court judges, several new additions to the District Attorney’s office, as well as recent bar passers. Presiding Judge Brian Back offered words of wisdom, recommending that Barrister always be nervous about making court appearances and reminding new lawyers that, since judges often talk among themselves about attorneys, it’s a good idea not to be the attorney they’re discussing in chambers.
