Legislative Day Returns!
Legislative Day returns for its fifth consecutive year! On April 19, 2023, California attorneys are invited to attend and hear from the Keynote Speaker, Rob Bonta, California’s 34th Attorney General!
An annual event, Legislative Day brings California’s leading attorneys representing all practice settings together to advocate, educate, interact with, and learn from the state’s leading experts representing the Judicial, Executive and Legislative Branches of Government. In addition to networking with the state’s most powerful advocates, attendees will be briefed on the most pressing issues facing the legal profession and proposed changes on the horizon.
