Government Relations Committee

The Barristers Government Relations Committee strives to provide a forum for new and young lawyers to develop leadership skills by interacting with judges, experienced attorneys, and elected officials from across the political spectrum.

In the past few years, we have hosted events with Mayor Eric Garcetti, District Attorney Jackie Lacey, City Attorney Mike Feuer, Attorney General Kamala Harris, former City Controller Wendy Greuel, former City Attorney Carmen Trutanich, former City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo, and former US Attorney Andre Birotte.

The Government Relations Committee also recently launched its Dinner with a Leader series. A departure from the large-scale events hosted by our committee with elected officials each year, the Dinner with a Leader series seeks to provide Barristers with the opportunity to engage local leaders on substantive policy issues in an intimate and informal setting over dinner and drinks.

Recent guests for this dinner series include Federal District Court Judge Beverly Reid O'Connell, former Supervising Judge of the Los Angeles County Superior Criminal Court Peter Espinoza, and Superior Court Judge Samantha P. Jessner.
