Bench/Bar

The Santa Cruz County Bar Association is fortunate to host the Bench Bar forum, which allows the Santa Cruz County Bar Association members to meet  with the local Judges once per quarter, so that the local attorneys and the Bench can address any issues that are of concern within the legal community.  These Bench Bar meetings have allowed a  strong bond  of mutual respect to form between the Bench and the Bar Association, which has served  to make the Santa Cruz Legal Community efficient and effective, and powerful.

Bench Bar meetings for 2016: January 20, April 13, July 13, October 12 in Dept. 2 at 12:15
