The Los Angeles Paralegal Association held its annual Paralegal Day mixer June 7 at Los Angeles Athletic Club’s Olympic Lounge, commemorating the official Paralegal Day Proclamation authorized by LA Mayor Eric Garcetti. More than 100 attendees attended the event, which featured keynote speakers Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Holly J. Fujie, a presiding judge at the Stanley Mosk Courthouse, and Judge Dorothy C. Kim, a misdemeanor judge at the Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center. A former Obama White House adviser, Fujie was the first Asian American to serve as California’s State Bar president. Kim, a former deputy chief of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California’s Criminal Division, worked early on in her career as a paralegal for a New York law firm. Both judges spoke about the importance of paralegals within the legal community.
