BARRISTERS’ CORNER, BY Katie Hause Becker

Law Student and Young Attorney Mixer

On Jan. 28, the Barristers sponsored a mixer for Barristers, new admittees to the State Bar, law students, and other friends at Surf Brewery in Ventura. Rennee Dehesa, Rachel Coleman, Katie Hause Becker, Joshua Hopstone, Lauren Sims, and Brier Miron welcomed other new members of the legal community in a fabulously-attended event. Attendees included students from the
Ventura College of Law and Pepperdine Law schools, as well as such distinguished guests as Wendy Lascher and her mother Peggy Cole (also a lawyer) and Doug Goldwater. The Barristers plan to have more events like this, and all are welcome. Please stay tuned to CITATIONS for more information.

Career Discussion

On Feb. 12, Becker and Coleman led a career panel discussion at Ventura College of Law alongside Ventura County Bar Association President Laura Bartels. The panel was open to VCL students and covered advice on getting internships while in law school, getting jobs out of law school, and networking to build your business upon passing the bar.
