Since we first learned about Covid-19 in March it has been my hope that we could have some in-person events this year.  The Board and the Executive Committee have monitored the situation throughout the year.  The health and safety of our speakers, guests, members, staff, and vendors are our paramount concern during these extraordinary times.  In light of the evolving guidance regarding social distancing and other efforts to mitigate spread of Covid-19, the Executive Committee has made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel all in-person events for the remainder of 2020 --- Trucks and Taps, the Trial Lawyers of the Trinity Golf Tournament, and the Annual Party are cancelled.

But, the show must go on:

  1. John Howie Award:  Nominations are now open.  The Howie Award is presented at our October 20th membership “lunch” meeting.  Nominations must be submitted to Anya by September 7th.
  2. Board Nominations:  Are you interested in serving on the DTLA Board of Directors?  If so, you can submit an application or you can nominate someone to serve on the Board. Nominations must be submitted to Anya by October 2nd.
  3. Workshop Your Case for Free:  2 Hours of Free CLE on Thursday, October 22nd.  Sign up to present a case or sign up as an observer to hear all of the amazing feedback.
  4. CLE: Register now for our monthly CLE “lunch” on Tuesday, September 22nd, where our speaker is Sari de la Motte, author of From Hostage to Hero, Captivate the Jury by Setting Them Free.   Sari de la Motte is a nationally recognized coach, speaker, and trial consultant.
