On the 2nd anniversary of our move to our new building in Irvine, Western State College of Law hosted its first Alumni Network event of 2018, on campus. Showcasing our new building and celebrating the ubiquity of our Alumni Judiciary, the Judges’ Night Mixer attracted a diverse assembly from throughout the legal community. Remarked Dean Allen K. Easley- “…and at the top of the list, with more of its graduates sitting on the OC bench today than any other law school anywhere – Western State – 20 grads! but as proud as we are about the accomplishments of our alumni who serve on the bench, tonight is about showing our appreciation for all the judges who work tirelessly to make a difference – whose independence is too often these days threatened by those who do not appreciate the value of an independent judiciary.”
