CLA & CJA Gala

September 17 @ 6:30 pm 10:00 pm

You’re invited to the CLA & CJA Gala! Save the date: September 17, 2022

CLA and the California Judges Association (CJA) will be hosting a gala on the evening of Saturday, September 17. 

This black-tie optional affair will bring together lawyers and judges across California to celebrate the accomplishments of both organizations. We will recognize incoming and outgoing leaders, member contributions, and donate to their respective foundations. 

The Gala will be the concluding event for the Annual Meeting in September in San Diego, and we hope this will be the first of an annual affair. 

This year’s Gala features the emcee talents of Andy Buckley (from the hit show The Office) and keynote speaker Sage Steele (ESPN Sportscenter host).

Where is it?

San Diego, where our flagship conference, the CLA Annual Meeting, will be this year! The CLA and CJA boards convene every year at the CLA Annual Meeting, so we decided to host this gala right after the conference.
