Mr. Osborn at a CCBA meeting.

 

On October 9, 2015 attorneys from throughout California will gather in Anaheim for the three-day 75th
Conference of Delegates of the Conference of California Bar Associations (CCBA). Meeting in conjunction with the Annual Meeting of the State Bar, delegates will debate nearly 100 resolutions affecting the practice of law in California.

As an independent 502(c)(6) non-profit corporation, the CCBA has become the voice of attorneys in California regarding legislation in Sacramento.

By any standard, the CCBA is the most successful advocacy group in Sacramento. During the legislative session that just ended, the legislature took up forty-four recent resolutions CCBA recommended. Fifteen such bills have been signed into law by the Governor, with another fifteen bills approved by both the Senate and Assembly awaiting signature by the Governor. Among the more controversial bills originating in the CCBA is ABx2-15 carried by Assemblymember Susan Talamantes Eggman, D.-Stockton, is the so called “End of Life Option Act” which establishes a procedure whereby a patient suffering from a terminal illness can request a drug for the purpose of ending his or her life.

Brown White & Osborn LLP attorneys continue to be at the forefront of leadership in the CCBA. On October 10, 2015, Jack B. Osborn, soon-to-be Past President of the San Bernardino County Bar Association (SBCBA) will be sworn in by Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye as the Chair of the Conference. Also on the Board of Directors of the CCBA is Brown White & Osborn LLP attorney John Short.  Victor Herrera, another Brown White & Osborn LLP attorney is on the Resolutions Committee of the CCBA.
