at the District Court's Pro Se Clinic.
Find out more and volunteer!

March 03, 2017
Time: 12:00 PM
The Federal Bar Association Young Lawyers Division will host a Brown Bag Lunch for young lawyers with the Honorable Otis D. Wright II, United States District Judge and The Honorable André Birotte Jr., United States District Judge. Bring your lunch and join Judge Wright and Judge Birotte for an exciting and informative introduction to federal practice in the Central District of California.

This is a wonderful opportunity for lawyers in their first few years of practice to meet and interact with members of the federal judiciary in a small group setting.

The event is free, but will be limited to 25 participants, so a prompt response is encouraged.
