U.S. Legal Support
Since September 2002, the EBLRLA has organized Gala dinners in Downtown Oakland to fundraise for the EBLRLA Scholarship Fund which awards scholarships to law students who live, work, or study in Alameda and Contra Costa counties. Additionally, we have honored Latinx judges and leaders over the past 20 years. Our Galas provide an opportunity for the local legal community to come together to support and celebrate past, present, and future Latinx lawyers.
