Our monthly meetings are informal ‘happy hour’ gatherings for members and potential members of the Advocates to chat about the plight of the newly-minted Santa Cruz lawyer. We generally meet the second Thursday of the month at 5:30pm at various locations throughout the county.

We try to hold an annual “meet & greet” with a particular local judge. Meeting times for judicial meet & greet vary based on judicial schedule.

Some of our meetings are open to all lawyers, regardless of how many years they have been in practice. Law students are welcome to join any of our meetings.
