We invite you to participate in a Power Lunch on 9/14/17 from 12 noon to 1:30 pm at the Pasadena Courthouse, 300 East Walnut Street, Dept. A, Pasadena, CA 91101.

The Los Angeles Superior Court and Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles have hosted numerous Power Lunches for inner-city high school students throughout the county.  These Power Lunches are a unique opportunity for students, lawyers, judges, and court staff members to come together to discuss career choices and the legal system.  For many of the students who participate, the Power Lunch is their first interaction with an attorney or a judge, and the experience can spark an interest in pursuing a career in the legal system.

Students are broken down into small groups of approximately 6 to 10 members each.  In this small group setting, volunteer attorneys and judges discuss their career paths, including what initially piqued their interest in the legal profession, what they do on a day-to- day basis, and what they enjoy about their work.  Small group leaders may also help coach the students on topics that help prepare them for the Legal Jeopardy game to conclude the program. Lunch will be provided to all attorney and judge volunteers.

Power Lunches have always been a tremendously worthwhile and rewarding experience for both the students and the attorney and judge volunteers.  Please sign up to volunteer for the 9/14/17 Pasadena Power Lunch via the following link:

Thanks so much for your time, and I hope to see you at the 9/14/17 Power Lunch!
