As you will recall, OC ABOTA sponsored Sean Emery of the Register to attend the Journalist Law School held at Loyola Law School June 6-9. Mr. Emery was one of approximately 30 journalists from across the country attending. Reports from him confirmed the four-day seminar was informative and worthwhile. Judge Nancy Zeltzer chaired this program.

On June 14, the Courthouse Steps Program welcomed 30 attendees to the Center Club to encourage future membership in ABOTA, to learn about our organization and to spend time with current members. All enjoyed the event chaired by Bill Haggerty.

The OC ABOTA Post-Graduate Fellowship Program continues forward as the six selected fellows graduate and prepare for the bar exam. The program starts September 4-spending September with a defense firm, October with a plaintiff firm and November with an Orange County civil panel judge. Those judges participating are the Honorable James Crandall, James DiCesare, Theodore Howard, Linda Marks, Glenda Sanders and Peter Wilson. This program is chaired by Eric Traut, Deb Tropp and Ed Leonard.

Our chapter has contributed $1,500 to the Constitutional Rights Foundation to continue its good work, and to honor its selection of Judge Nancy Zeltzer as its Orange County Judge of the Year.

Our Civility Matters Presentations during August/September at Chapman, Western State and UCI Law Schools are being organized by committee chairman Sean Burke.

The Orange County ABOTA Foundation Fundraiser will take place on Thursday, September 13. Details are still being worked out by chairpersons Mark Robinson and Doug DeGrave.

The Second Annual OC ABOTA Teachers Law School, in conjunction with the Orange County Department of Education, is scheduled for Tuesday, October 2. The guest speaker this year is Justice William Bedsworth. We hope to have approximately 50 teachers/administrators attend. This event is chaired by Judge Linda Marks.

We continue to look to increase and diversify our membership ranks. If you know and can recommend someone, please contact membership chair Bill Haggerty or any board member. Get involved in the best ABOTA chapter in the country.
