Please join the Barristers Club for the 27th Annual Judges Reception on July 13, 2011! Every year, the Barristers Club holds the Judges Reception to honor San Francisco state court judges and commissioners and federal judges and magistrates. The event encourages informal interaction between the judiciary and the Club's membership, which consists of attorneys in their first ten years of practice. While attorneys of all levels of practice are encouraged to attend, the reception provides a unique opportunity for associates, summer associates, and law students to meet judges in an informal setting, and learn first-hand what judges look for from attorneys and want to see and hear from the bench. In 2007 the American Bar Association Young Lawyer Division recognized the Judges Reception as one of the top events in the nation for young attorneys.

The Reception is also the occasion on which the Barristers Club bestows the Tara L. Riedley "Barristers Choice" Award on an outstanding judge from the state or federal bench to recognize their extraordinary efforts to educate and encourage young lawyers who are new to the practice of law and the courtroom. This year we will present the Honorable Vaughn R. Walker (Ret.), United States District Court for the Northern District of California, with the Barristers Choice Award.

The revenue raised at this event supports the Barristers Club and its programs.
