We look forward to seeing everyone again, and in person, at the 63rd Annual Meeting being held at the historic Westin St. Francis on Union Square in San Francisco on December 8-9, 2022, as we celebrate our success stories and challenges, and we continue to move “Onward & Upward” through the pandemic and beyond!

In addition to the always popular “Mike Brady Year in Review,” highlights for this year’s program involve blockbuster honored guests and speakers including retired California Supreme Court Justice, Hon. Ming W. Chin, Justice of the California Court of Appeal, Hon. Teri L. Jackson, a best-selling author, preeminent trial lawyers, all-star panels from the bench and both sides of the bar, and high-profile speakers throughout our profession.
