On September 23, 2023, history will be made for the second time in San Diego, and we invite you to be part of the celebration!

For the second time in California Lawyers Association (CLA) History, the Presidents Gala returns! Planned in partnership with the California Judges Association (CJA), you are invited for a celebration featuring members of the bench and bar for a celebration like no other. 

The CLA & CJA Presidents Gala is anything but your typical red carpet, black tie event. In 2022, over 500 legal professionals and law students gathered to celebrate the legal profession and it was trending for months throughout the legal community.

This year, the hype continues as we’ve designed a night to elevate our unified commitment as stewards of the highest ethics and representatives of the law, promoting excellence, diversity, and inclusion in the legal profession, and an equitable administration of justice and rule of law. 

As one of California’s most recognizable legal influencers, you are invited to validate our mission behind our why and shine not just one, but multiple spotlights on the work we do to influence policy and justice through the law to better the communities in which we live and work.

Join as we celebrate not just you, but all that we stand for a community of attorney influencers.

Here’s to an epic night that’s sure to be #gaLAWmorous! 

Culture attire welcomed.

We are committed to accessibility! Virtual events are equipped with closed captioning. To request an in-person accommodation, send us a note at or contact us at 916-516-1760 for assistance.
