California Supreme Court Justice Carlos Moreno and former Detroit Mayor Dennis Archer will be the keynote speakers at this month's State Bar Midyear Meeting, which will focus on improving access and fairness in the legal profession and within bar leadership.

Entitled "Charting a Statewide Agenda: Diversity, Leadership & Strategies for Success," the meeting offers up to eight hours of MCLE credit. Course offerings address access and fairness in the profession and in the courts; maintaining a work/life balance; obstacles to participation of legal professionals with disabilities; elder abuse; and avoiding attorney discipline.

Participants will have an opportunity to provide input and recommend strategies on improving access to the profession and increasing the participation and retention of diverse attorneys in California.

The weekend meeting will be held March 15-17 at the Lodge at Sonoma Renaissance Hotel & Spa. A list of complete course offerings and registration information is available at www.calbar.org, by calling the Office of Legal Services at 415/538-2143, or by e-mail at Betty.Barker@calsb.org.
