January 8, 2015, MCLE Luncheon: The Honorable Judith L. Haller

La Jolla Bar Association — Ethics MCLE on Thursday, January 8, 2015, at noon, at the Manhattan Restaurant in downtown La Jolla with The Honorable Judith L. Haller.  See also Events calendar on the website.

The La Jolla Bar Association is pleased to have as our speaker, The Honorable Judith L. Haller, Associate Justice of the California  Courts of Appeal, Fourth District Court of Appeal.  Justice Haller will speak about the Code of Judicial Ethics, which governs the ethical conduct of judicial officers on and off the bench.  Justice Halller will address several of the canons which impact the manner in which judges and attorneys interact professionally and socially, including those concerning disclosure and disqualification obligations; ex parte communications; gifts and social interactions between attorneys and judicial officers; fundraising activities; and political endorsements and judicial campaigns.

 Justice Haller has suggested four ethics opinions as substantive materials to accompany her presentation to our members.  For your convenience, and because of their length,  our LJBA President, Robert Moldnhauer, sent these opinions in pdf format to members by e-mail, so that members may print and review these opinions prior to the lunch meeting.  If you didn’t receive the e-mail, please e-mail George Hurley at, who will forward the President’s e-mail.  

This will be a very informative and interesting program that will provide 1 hour of CLE credit in ethics.  Please calendar the event, and make every effort to attend.    

We look forward to seeing you this Thursday, January 8th.  A special thanks goes to our LJBA Secretary, Abigail Stephenson, who arranged for Justice Haller as this month’s speaker, and who also provided the PDF attachments for us.
