Law students are encouraged to join the Beverly Hills Bar Association as student members and to participate in Barristers events and programs. Student membership in the Barristers provides an opportunity to socialize with fellow law students and attorneys, make valuable professional contacts, learn about various fields of the law, and make a difference in the community.
The Barristers also host an annual New Admittees cocktail party reception for new California State Bar Admittees to celebrate their accomplishment, provide an opportunity to meet other new lawyers and members of the BHBA, and to introduce them to Barristers events and programs.
Additionally, the Barristers hold several brunches throughout each year for a select group of students from each of the local law schools, including Pepperdine, Loyola, USC, UCLA, Southwestern, La Verne, and Whittier law schools. These brunches provide an opportunity for law students to get acquainted with the Beverly Hills Bar Association at the beginning of their legal career and to learn how to make the most of their membership.
For more information on how to get involved in Barristers programs, events and committees, we welcome you to attend one of our monthly meetings, on the second Wednesday of each month, at the Beverly Hills Bar Association. Monthly BOG meetings provide an excellent opportunity for students to meet attorneys from a variety of practice areas, get the latest information on upcoming Barrister programs, and listen to guest speakers who often include local judges.
As a gift, upon being admitted to the California State Bar, interested new attorneys, in their first year of practice, enjoy a one year complimentary membership to the Beverly Hills Bar Association, as a Barrister.
We hope to see you at a Barristers event, program or meeting soon!
