The Southwestern Bar Fair is an event at Southwestern Law School in Downtown Los Angeles where local bar associations come together and talk to interested students about what a bar association is, why they should join, and how they can sign up to hear more.
The Beverly Hills Bar Association Barristers are continually impressed by Immediate Past President, Leigh Leshner and her dedicated committee who once again planned and hosting another greatly successful Vintage Bouquet Food and Wine Extravaganza in April 2012!
Since its commencement in 1988, the Vintage Bouquet has become one of the Beverly Hills Bar Association’s premiere events, featuring bites by several of L.A.’s top chefs and tastings by many of California’s premium wineries, along with entertaining live music and fun silent and live auctions.
Most importantly, proceeds of the Vintage Bouquet support charitable contributions made by the Beverly Hills Bar Foundation, including pro bono services, community outreach projects, legal education programs, and access to the justice system.
A sincere thank you to all who volunteered, attended, and donated for this year’s Vintage Bouquet, which may very well have been the most successful Extravaganza so far! For more information on the event, please visit www.vintagebouquet.com. Photos by Jamie Pham Photography.
The Barristers Board of Governors enjoyed their December meeting at the Hammer Museum, UCLA. The Hammer Museum is a unique, cutting-edge arts institution that connects the classics and the contemporary through its varied collections, wide-ranging exhibitions, and provocative programs. The Barristers are grateful to the Hammer's Chief Curator and Senior Manager of Events, for their generosity in helping us make this evening a possibility!
