President's Message

Jane Shay Wald, Irell & Manella LLP

Jane Shay Wald

Where we have been, and where we are going
We've done some great things
Where we've reaped, we'll be sowing

A great presentation on "Ways to Persuade"
By Tom V. Girardi, who spoke while we ate

At Restaurant Craft, for some CLE credit
If you weren't there, you may live to regret it

But wait, we won't strand you, we offer a lot
Sign up for our program by André Birotte

He's U.S. Attorney for CD of Cal
And he'll come to address us, each law guy and gal

On December 7 at Lawry's Prime Rib
So come with an appetite, we'll supply bib

Do you need ethics credits?  Or substance abuse ones?
We're offering both, watch our web site for news runs

We'll eblast the dates and the prices and day
You'll get lots of use for the small fee you'll pay

And yes, we'll have more events where you can meet
Other law members, and enjoy good stuff to eat

So put on good shoes that will go with your raiment
To come to our series on law, entertainment

Four evenings of panelists, big names in the biz
They'll say what's not cool, and also what is

As we approach March 21, hold the date
For our Annual Banquet, it's going to be great

Have you something to say?  Send us articles please
For our newsletter, subjects to teach law or tease

Our publishing guidelines are not hard to find
In this issue, or phone me, or just read my mind.

Also, I hope that you'll soon get to meet
Shaili Jailal, who's replaced our Orit

As CCBA's new Executive Dir
Though we'll sure miss Orit, we are glad to have her.

Another request, if you are or you know
A lawyer who's authored a book, play or so

Published on subjects not just law related
But humor or history, lovers who're fated

To find their true destiny over the years
We'll gather all authors and knock back some beers

At a special event that we'll offer next spring
We'll mingle with authors – the new Stephen King?

The months have been lively with more fun in store
We love your suggestions, please send us some more

Best Regards,
