Conference of California Bar Associations Passes Six LACBA Resolutions

Write resolutions for the next conference.

The following 2010 LACBA resolutions were passed by the Conference of California Bar Associations (still informally referred to as the Conference of Delegates) at its annual conference held in September in Monterey.

  • Resolution 01-11-2010: Experts: Appointment after Trial (approved in principle)

The complete list of actions taken at the conference is available here.

Resolution authors work closely with the CCBA Board of Directors and with the conference-paid lobbyist to fine-tune proposals and locate appropriate legislators to carry the resultant measures, allowing authors an opportunity to take an integral part in improving the law. 

If you are interested in making improvements to code sections that affect your clients and practice, please review these and other resolutions at www.calconference.org and consider writing resolutions (with statements of reasons) that the LACBA Delegation may submit to the statewide conference in 2011.

Please send formatted resolutions to the LACBA Delegation chair in care of Grace Danziger at gdanziger@lacba.org by December 17, 2010. (If you wish to be introduced to a veteran delegate to consult with regarding your resolution idea prior to formatting and submitting it, please contact gdanziger@lacba.org.)
