Annual law library event to honor appellate judge

That's the headline for the DJ's article today about the Friends of the Los Angeles Law Library's annual Beacon of Justice Award gala on April 5 honoring 2/4's Justice Audrey Collins.

"Guest speakers for the event will include Collins' former federal bench colleague, Virginia Phillips, chief judge of the U.S. District Court for the Central District, and state Court of Appeal Justice Nora M. Manella.

The program takes place in the law library's Mildred L. Lillie Building in downtown Los Angeles, preceded by a cocktail reception and buffet at 6:45 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online and at the door."

This is always a fantastic event. To thank the sponsors, they'll now get some more airtime here:
