Judicial Excellence & Scholarship Gala

Since September 2002, the EBLRLA has organized gala dinners in Downtown Oakland to award scholarships for Latina/o and Latinx law students in Alameda and Contra Costa counties.

Additionally, our Galas have honored Latinx judges and provides an opportunity for the local legal community to come together, support, and celebrate future Latinx lawyers.
