Sills Award Presentation & U.S. Supreme Court Preview

The OCBA Appellate Law section is hosting its "First Monday:  U.S. Supreme Court Preview" on Mon., Oct. 3, at 6 p.m. at the Pacific Club in Newport Beach. 

Dean Erwin Chemerinsky of UCI Law School and Professor John Eastman of Chapman Law School will bring us up-to-date on which major issues the U.S. Supreme Court will decide in its October 2011 Term.  Amaze your friends with the expert analysis you'll receive from both sides of the ideological spectrum.

Also, the section will bestow the second annual Presiding Justice David G. Sills Award for Appellate Excellence.  This is an especially poignant presentation, given our loss of the PJ this year.  Presenting the award to retired 4/3 Justice Sheila Prell Sonenshine will be 2/3 Presiding Justice Joan Dempsey Klein, appellate practitioner Marjorie G. Fuller, and U.S. District Court Judge Andrew Guilford.

Presiding Justice Sills loved the law and he loved this court.  Don't miss this chance to celebrate appellate excellence, both here in Orange County and at the U.S. Supreme Court.  Sign up here!
