Spring Summit set for June 2-3 in San Jose

The State Bar 2006 Spring Summit, focused on achieving diversity in the legal profession, will be held June 2 and 3 at the San Jose Marriott. This year's conference will feature the results of the bar's access and fairness online survey, introduction of a "pipeline initiative" to attract a more diverse law student population, and the launch of a California Judicial Summit.

Speakers include state Supreme Court Justice Carlos Moreno, Bruce Sewell, general counsel of Intel Corp., and U.S. District Court Judge Thelton Henderson.

Participants can earn MCLE credit in elimination of bias.

In conjunction with the bar meeting, a judicial summit, convened to address how to increase representation of racial and ethnic minorities on the bench, will be held June 3. Chief Justice Ronald George, members of the Judicial Council, representatives of the governor's office and members of the legislature are expected to attend.

The summit is sponsored by the bar's Center for Access & Fairness and is funded through voluntary contributions, including the Foundation of the State Bar. Early registration — before May 19 — is $100. Late registration, from May 20-25, is based on space availability and is $150. The student rate for early registrants is $50, or $75 for late registration. Information about scholarships is available by e-mailing or by calling 415-538-2219 or 415-538-2267.
