Become a Leader of the Legal Community: Participate on LACBA Committees
Use the application form to indicate your interest in serving on LACBA committees. Deadline to submit is April 29, 2011.
Whether the issue affects the law, the profession, the justice system, or society, LACBA committees have earned a respected reputation for playing a lead role in the study and analysis of these matters and in establishing the voice of the legal profession by providing guidance and commentary to appropriate entities. Our collective voice helps define the profession by providing comment on regulatory proposals and legislative measures as well as filing amicus briefs at the local, state, and national levels that not only affect substantive areas of law but also the way attorneys practice law—and our members have real impact. Committees often recommend actions to LACBA’s Executive Committee and Board of Trustees that advocate reforms affecting every attorney and the way business is conducted in our courtrooms and community.
Among other things, committees produce and publish judicial evaluations to assist the public in electing competent judicial officers, interview judges and write profiles, draft and research opinions on attorney ethics, and make recommendations as to whether LACBA should join cases as amicus curiae. Committees also provide members with opportunities to work with judges and other attorneys in specific or diverse areas.
To apply for membership on committees, fill out and return the application form by April 29, 2011, to Judy Jacobson as noted on the form. For more information about committees, contact Grace Danziger at firstname.lastname@example.org or (213) 896-6407.
