Come admire a beautiful view of the Riverside skyline while enjoying appetizers and refreshments from Riverside's own, The Salted Pig. Network with the Riverside legal community and meet members of the judiciary. Barristers alumni are encouraged to attend and socialize with past and current members

We are humbled to present the Honorable Jackson Lucky with the 2019 Barristers Judicial Officer of the Year Award and Robyn Lewis with the 2019 Barristers Attorney Advocate of the Year Award!

Hon. Jackson Lucky: 2019 Barristers Judicial Officer of the Year Award

This award is presented to a judicial officer in the Riverside legal community that takes a special interest in the development and mentorship of new and young attorneys. Judge Lucky routinely goes above and beyond to be a model member of the Riverside legal community. You can frequently find Judge Lucky coaching high school mock trial along with newer attorneys, participating at the Deegan Inn of Court, providing guidance and mentorship to young attorneys, and presenting at MCLE events for the Barristers and the Bar Association with some of the best power point presentations around.v

Robyn Lewis: 2019 Barristers Attorney Advocate of the Year Award

This award is presented to an attorney in the Riverside legal community that advocates for new and young attorneys and presents young attorneys with opportunities for growth and advancement. When considering nominations for this award, the Barristers board unanimously and enthusiastically selected Robyn Lewis to be the first-ever recipient of the Barristers Attorney Advocate of the Year Award. Robyn has distinguished herself in our legal community through her commitment to the RCBA. Robyn has been indispensable in the development and continued success of both the Bridging the Gap program and the New Attorney Academy. Both of these programs give the new attorneys an introduction to the Riverside legal community, while also providing opportunities for relationship building, MCLE credit, and skills-based learning.

We hope you will join us to recognize these amazing leaders in our legal community and to celebrate the Riverside judiciary. This event is free for judicial officers and Barristers (members of the RCBA who are under age 37 or have been in practice less than 7 years). The cost to attend is $10 for RCBA members. The cost to attend is $20 for non-RCBA members. Register for this event on the Barristers Facebook Event or the EventBrite page, http://rcbabarristersjudicialrecep.eventbrite.com.
