You are invited to join the Barristers Club for the 28th Annual Judges Reception on July 26, 2012! Each year, the Barristers Club invites judges of San Francisco Superior Court, as well as federal judges and magistrates to the Judges Reception for an informal evening of mingling with young lawyers of the Barristers Club. The event encourages informal interaction between the judiciary and the Club's membership. Although the Barristers Club is comprised of law students and attorneys in their first ten years of practice, all levels of attorneys are encouraged to attend. The reception provides a unique opportunity for associates, summer associates, and law students to meet judges in an informal setting. 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 revenue raised at this event supports the Barristers Club and its programs.

The Barristers Club is excited to announce that Associate Justice Maria Rivera, First District Court of Appeal, will be honored with the 2012 Tara L. Riedley Barristers Choice Award. This award is given each year to one judge serving in San Francisco to recognize his or her extraordinary efforts to educate and encourage young lawyers that are new to the practice of law and the courtroom.  In addition, the award recognizes work done outside the courtroom in support of programs of The Bar Association of San Francisco and Barristers Club.

Justice Rivera is a well-respected jurist and her involvement in the community is an inspiration to the profession. She is active with The Bar Association of San Francisco's Judicial mentoring program, which provides resources about the judicial application process and helps attorneys understand the path to the bench.

Justice Rivera’s involvement in the community includes taking leadership in numerous legal and community organizations, including the State Bar of California Legal Services Trust Fund, Invest in Kids, and the Latino Leadership Forum. She has also been recognized for her long-term commitment to improving access to justice throughout her career.

The Barristers Club is proud to recognize Justice Rivera’s commitment to helping develop young attorneys, and for her passion and dedication to serving the community.
