The California Lawyers Foundation (CLF) believes in a legal profession that mirrors our population, in access to justice for all and in a society that understands the equalizing role of the rule of law and judicial branch. Specifically, the Foundation works on three core initiative areas: access to justice; civics engagement and education; and diversity, equity and inclusion. As part of CLF’s core work, we host a signature speakers series on a variety of topics over the course of the year. In 2022, CLF has a particular focus on educating the next generation and current lawyers about opportunities in the legal profession through this series.
