The Beverly Hills Bar Association (BHBA), in conjunction with the Beverly Hills Bar Foundation, hosts the 63rd Annual Supreme Court Luncheon honoring the justices of the California Supreme Court on Wednesday, June 6, 2017, 11:30 am, at The Beverly Hilton. The Court’s seven justices are slated to attend: Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye, who will make extended remarks about the current state of the judiciary, and Associate Justices Ming W. Chin, Carol A. Corrigan, Mariano-Florentino Cuéllar, Leondra R. Kruger, Goodwin H. Liu and Kathryn Mickle Werdegar. In addition, Frank A. McGuire, who served as Court Administrator and Clerk of the Supreme Court of California from July 2012 to September 2016, is being recognized for his exceptional service. The keynote speaker is the Hon. Margaret Mary Morrow (Ret.), President and CEO of Public Counsel and formerly the Senior Judge of the United States District Court for the Central District of California. Dozens of other judicial officers and other dignitaries are attending as well. Proceeds from the event benefit the Beverly Hills Bar Foundation scholarship program.
Scholarships are being presented to seven economically disadvantaged, academically qualified, local law students who have demonstrated a commitment to public interest efforts; and the BHBA presents awards to the winners of its annual “Rule of Law Writing Competition.” Judge Deborah L. Sanchez of the Los Angeles County Superior Court who sits in the Bellflower Courthouse, a former Bar Foundation scholarship recipient, is providing brief comments about the impact of the scholarship on her career.
“A long and proud tradition of the Beverly Hills Bar Association, this luncheon provides an opportunity for the BHBA to recognize the California’s Supreme Court Justices for their selfless dedication and outstanding service to the State,” says BHBA President Howard S. Fisher. “The Beverly Hills Bar Association’s annual Supreme Court Luncheon, a tradition that began in 1954, also enables Southern California lawyers and jurists an opportunity to get together outside of the court room.”
Adds Beverly Hills Bar Foundation President Jim Jahant, “We are also proud to support deserving law school students through the Foundation’s scholarship and Rule of Law award programs. These accomplished young men and women have already made a positive and indelible impact on the community through their dedicated public service.”
Scholarships are being presented to seven law school students: Nneka Jackson of Loyola Law School; Vivian Cheung of Pepperdine University School of Law; Monica Ponce De Leon and Betzayda Montoya of Southwestern Law School; Norma Ventura and Viviana Arcia of UCLA School of Law; and Roza Petrosyan of USC Gould School of Law.
Scholarship Donors are Girardi Keese; Greenberg Traurig; Greines, Martin, Stein & Richland LLP; Roxborough, Pomerance, Nye & Adreani, LLP; and Sidley Austin LLP.
Champions of Justice Donors include Freeman, Freeman & Smiley, LLP; Greenberg Glusker; Oldman, Cooley, Sallus, Birnberg & Coleman LLP; Shernoff Bidart Echeverria LLP; and Valensi Rose, PLC.
Press Reception Co-Sponsors are Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP; Davis Wright Tremaine LLP; and Faegre Baker Daniels, LLP. The “Rule of Law Writing Competition” sponsor is Goodson Wachtel and Petrulis APC. Individual contributors include Joel Boxer of Bird, Marella, Boxer, Wolpert, Nessim, Drooks, Lincenberg & Rhow, P.C.; and Marshall Grossman of Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliff LLP.
In 2013, the Chief Justice appointed Frank McGuire to a three-year term as an Advisory Member of the Judicial Council of California, where he served on both its Executive and Planning Committee and Litigation Management Committee. Before assuming his role as Court Administrator, McGuire served as Managing Attorney of the Court of Appeal, First Appellate District, for nearly a decade. A graduate of Stanford Law School, he also served as an attorney on the chambers staffs of California Supreme Court Justice Janice Rogers Brown (1996–1999) and Justices Robert L. Dossee and John E. Benson of the First Appellate District (1991–1996). He was an associate with Morrison & Foerster LLP, and served as law clerk to Judge Cynthia Holcomb Hall of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit (1986–1987).
Hon. Margaret Mary Morrow (Ret.) was appointed United States District Court for the Central District of California by President Bill Clinton. She received a J.D. cum laude from Harvard Law School in 1974 and practiced law in Los Angeles from 1974 to 1998. In 1988 she served as President of the Los Angeles County Bar Association and was elected President of the State Bar of California in 1993, as its first female president.
Judge Deborah L. Sanchez, who also sits on Teen Court proceedings, is a graduate of California State University at Long Beach and received her J.D. from Loyola Marymount University’s Loyola Law School.
The Beverly Hills Bar Association, founded in 1931, is the fifth largest bar association in California, with nearly 5,000 members. Its mission is to serve its members, to lead the legal profession and to advocate for justice in the community.
The Beverly Hills Bar Foundation (BHBF) is the charitable affiliate of the Beverly Hills Bar Association. Its mission is to promote equal access to Justice through support of law-related education and community service projects, designed to educate and assist youth, adults and seniors.
