Your Ticket Gets You Much More Than Just an Entertaining Dinner...

In our 6th year we decided it was time to provide more than just an entertaining dinner. Which of course we will still do with two of the Bay Areas most recognizable journalists, Tim Kawakami and Janelle Wang, speaking and emceeing (respectively).


Included with your banquet ticket, we are including three moderated panel discussions and providing MCLE credits for them.


The first will feature some of the top API prosecutors from across the country in a moderated panel discussion about how to become a prosecutor and how to move up in prosecution offices.


The second will be a fireside chat with California's Judicial Appointment Secretary Justice Martin Jenkins, who will discuss what Governor Newsom is looking for and the importance of diversity on the bench.


The second will feature the "Supremes" as in the three API California Supreme Court Justices: 

Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye

Justice Ming Chin

Justice Goodwin Liu

in a moderated panel discussion about a number of topics.


It is guaranteed to be an afternoon and an evening to remember!
