Annual Bench-Bar Event: Meeting This Moment

UPDATE: This event has been rescheduled to September 15.

The year 2020 first brought stay-at-home orders and unprecedented closures of the court system due to the COVID-19 pandemic, then sustained protests over police treatment of African-Americans. During this extraordinary year, the Bench has grappled with how to maintain access to the courts. The Bar has confronted COVID-related challenges to the practice of law and its role in ensuring equal access to justice. Finally, media outlets have worked overtime to cover it all while managing unusual new obstacles to newsgathering. Panelists will discuss local efforts to confront these issues from their respective roles as legal community activists, journalists and law enforcement officials.

When: 5:30 – 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 15

Who: Hon. Dwayne Moring, Moderator, San Diego Superior Court, South County Supervising Judge
