    Hello OCWLA members,

    Happy New Year!

    As we welcome in 2024, I am excited and to begin my term as your new OCWLA President! Thank you to those who attended our spectacular Holiday Party and Installation Dinner at the beautiful Lido House. Our newly-installed Board will hold its retreat this month, and is energized for the new year. We will continue to offer our members valuable networking opportunities, innovative educational programs, complimentary coffee meetups, and of course, our fabulous Annual Gala in the Fall. If you have any suggestions or feedback regarding events and/or programming that you would like to see this year, please feel free to email me directly at any time at cdjang@buchalter.com. I welcome your suggestions on how we can improve our offerings to our members. 

    We kick off the new year with several events. On January 18, 2024, the OCWLA will be well-represented with a full table at OCBA Judges’ Night at the Irvine Marriott. As one of the OCBA’s largest and most active affiliate bar associations, the OCWLA is a proud supporter of OCBA Judges’ Night, including its Franklin G. West Award Winner and OCWLA Member, Nikki Miliband! 

    On January 29, we will partner with the OCBA Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee to offer our first MCLE luncheon of the year: Path to Pro Bono: How to Understand and Connect with Diverse and Low Income Communities, which will be moderated by OCWLA Board Member Antoinette Naddour of Veterans Legal Institute. Please note that this MCLE qualifies for one hour legal ethics credit. 

    Last, but not least, on January 29 at 5:30 p.m., OCWLA Member Yvette Patko will lead the first Book Club of the year with a discussion on Ann Napolitano’s Hello Beautiful. Links to details about each of these events are below.

    I hope that the year ahead will be filled with shared accomplishments, growth, and empowerment. I am honored to serve as your President and look forward to the coming year!

    Warmly,

    Caroline

    Happy Holidays OCWLA Members!

    It is hard to believe that 2023 is coming to an end! I have been so honored to serve as the OCWLA President this year. Thank you for trusting in me to serve and lead this great organization. It has truly been an honor! 

    We had a busy and fun-filled 2023. This year we held our first Business Referral and Speed Networking event, which we plan to make an annual event. We held numerous MCLEs on a variety of topics from Navigating AI in the Practice of Law to our Annual Equal Pay Day MCLE. We partnered with a number of Affiliate Bar Organizations and held free coffee meetups to give our members an opportunity to connect and network. Our book club continued to meet monthly and has been going strong for eight years now. 

    Also, in partnership with the Unity Bar, we recommended four candidates to the bench who have been appointed. We also held our signature events, including our Annual Wine Tasting, our Membership Mixer, Past Presidents’ Tea, Women Judges Reception, where we had over 35 judges in attendance, and held our Annual Gala and Awards Dinner at the beautiful VEA Hotel. 

    Thank you to our members, the OCWLA Board, and our many Sponsors who helped make 2023 a great year! Last week we held our Annual Holiday Party and Installation Dinner where the 2024 Board of Directors, the 2024 Executive Officers, and the 2024 Foundation Board were sworn in. I want to personally welcome Caroline Djang as the 2024 President of the OCWLA. 2024 will be a great year under her leadership. I look forward to serving as the 2024 President of the OCWLA Foundation and on the Executive Committee as the Immediate Past President. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year, and I hope to see you all soon at an event in the new year.

    Happy September OCWLA Members!

    Thank you to everyone who came out to our Women Judges Reception last week and thank you to all the judges who attended and supported this great event. We had over 30 judges in attendance. One of the missions of the OCWLA is the advancement of women on the bench. Over the past year, from 2021 to 2022, there was around a 3% increase in women on the trial court in Orange County. While this is great news, women still only make up 35% of the judges on the trial court in Orange County. The California statewide percentage of women judges on the trial court is 39.7%. The 4th District Court of Appeal has 40.9% women justices and the statewide percentage of women justices on the Courts of Appeal is 42%. The California Supreme Court is 57.1% women. 

    While women have made substantial progress on the bench here in California and in Orange County, there is still much progress to be made. The OCWLA thanks the women judges who have helped advance women on the bench and within the legal profession, and thanks the many people who have supported them along the way.

    Our Annual Gala is just five weeks away and will be held at VEA Newport Beach on Tuesday, October 17th. Make sure to register soon, as this event will likely sell out. Sponsorship opportunities are still available!
