NJCHS Gala in San Francisco

October 17, 2018

Sign up now for the NJCHS Second Annual Gala on October 17, 2018. This year's Gala will be held at the lovely and historic Green Room of the War Memorial Opera House in San Francisco.

We will celebrate our mission and also the importance of an Independent Judiciary.While we dine on the delicious fare of our wonderful caterers, we will also hear from renowned constitutional law scholar, Dean Erwin Chemerinsky. Dean Chemerinsky will talk about the impacts major personnel changes have on courts, looking at both the Supreme Court and more "locally" on the Ninth Circuit with the loss of Judges Noonan, Pregerson, and Reinhardt. It should be a very lively and interesting evening.
Cocktails begin at 5:30 and dinner starts at 6:30. 


Thank you to our Sponsors!
