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.
