Enjoy a bike ride in the ocean breeze in Hermosa and Manhattan Beaches with fellow judges and lawyers followed by a congenial lunch at the Good Stuff Restaurant on Sunday, April 21, 2013.

Participants will check-in at The Good Stuff Restaurant in Hermosa Beach at 8:30 a.m. The bike ride will begin at 9:00 and riders will travel north or south (depending on whether they want a more or less strenuous ride) for one hour.

At the hour mark, riders will turn around and ride back. Everyone will return to the Good Stuff Restaurant in Hermosa Beach at 11:00 a.m. for brunch. We estimate that the price of participation would be about $25.00 to cover the cost of a bicycle rental and brunch.

New Admittees Reception on March 14, 2013 a Success!!

The Beverly Hills Bar Association Barristers proudly hosted their popular New Admittees Reception on March 14, 2013, garnering over 150 attendees.

Bar Leaders and Barristers of the BHBA warmly welcomed those newly admitted to the profession at the Beverly Hills Bar Association’s offices in the Rolex Building on Wilshire Boulevard.

The Honorable Judge John Segal addressed the attendees about the importance of community involvement and building lasting relationships in the legal profession, reinforcing some of the core values of the Beverly Hills Bar Association.

Bar Officers, Board of Governors Members and other Bar Leaders and Bar Staff were all present to welcome the New Admittees.

Guests mingled and networked with fellow constituents as they snacked on delicious hors d'oeuvres at the reception.

The Barristers would like to thank all those who attended as well as Lexis-Nexis, our generous sponsor, who contributed to the success of our event.

If you missed the New Admittees Reception, or even if you attended, but would like to learn more about what the Bar Association can do for you, please join us for our upcoming “Bar Camp.” More information can be found on our website at www.bhba.org.
