WE ARE PROUD TO SUPPORT THE WORK OF ONEJUSTICE. Congratulations to this year’s award winners:

Diane T. Chin

Associate Dean, Stanford Law School

David Lash

Managing Counsel of Pro Bono Services, O’Melveny & Myers LLP

Beth J. Jay

Principle Attorney to the Chief Justice, California Supreme Court We are Morrison & Foerster—where providing pro bono service is a core value. Whether the project is incorporating a new nonprofit, advising a low-income entrepreneur, representing a wrongfully-convicted individual, or helping parents to get special education services for their child, Morrison & Foerster lawyers provide legendary service to every one of our clients, fee-paying and pro bono alike

From the Executive Director Good evening friends It is so wonderful to have you all here together for our celebration recognizing three amazing leaders in OneJustice’s statewide network! We all know that justice denied leads to devastating results. Eviction. Unsafe housing. Dangerous work conditions. Domestic violence. Elder abuse. Predatory lending. Inadequate health care. Not enough to eat. OneJustice is the critical link between life-saving, affordable legal services and people in need. Our state’s most vulnerable low-income communities, persons with disabilities, senior citizens, veterans, limited English-speakers, women, single-parent families, and at-risk children face significant barriers to justice. Without proper representation and advocacy they endure innumerable assaults and affronts to dignity. Access to legal help changes lives. OneJustice’s programs strengthen nonprofit legal organizations and their key pro bono partners so that together they can better meet the legal needs of underserved Californians. Our Pro Bono Initiative builds and improves pro bono programs and infrastructure statewide so more Californians in need have access to effective legal assistance. Our Capacity Building Project provides trainings, resources, and consulting on nonprofit management, governance, and leadership. Your involvement in these efforts builds an emergency safety net to meet an ever-growing need in our community. You change lives – the lives of clients in need of legal help, attorneys seeking training and support, and pro bono volunteers who want to give back. OneJustice’s mission is to resolve legal problems by removing barriers to justice – and you all make that possible. On behalf of the OneJustice Board of Directors, Advisory Board, and staff, I thank you all for being part of the OneJustice family. We are so grateful for your presence here tonight. Many thanks,

Julia R. Wilson

From the Board Chair Dear Friends,

Thank you for joining OneJustice tonight in honoring Diane Chin, Beth Jay, and David Lash for their work on increasing access to justice for low-income Californians. OneJustice is all about connections. We connect vulnerable Californians in need of legal help with those who can provide it, and we bring together people who envision a better world where there is equal justice for all. All three of tonight’s honorees play a vital role in fostering and strengthening the connections that increase the legal help available to Californians in need. We are also honored to have Justice Kathryn Werdegar as our special guest and awards presenter this evening. As a lawyer and educator, Diane T. Chin is committed to using her skills to advance social justice and the public interest. In her position at Stanford, she helps to create and support a pipeline for the next generation of public interest advocates, develops strategies that improve how lawyers serve under-represented communities, and provides service to practitioners and advocates in the field. Daily, her job provides concrete examples of how the law makes a difference and involves collaborations with colleagues inside and outside the law school who are just as committed to ensuring that the law’s tools are used to build a more just society. From her perspective as Principal Attorney to the Chief Justice, Beth Jay has had a unique chance to see the evolution of the California judicial branch in its efforts to better serve the public. Beth’s work has included projects focused on judicial ethics, pending legislation affecting the courts, the role of the State Bar, access to justice, strategic planning for the branch, ensuring quality representation for death row appellants, and independence of the judiciary. At the heart of Beth’s work is a deep-seated belief in public service, in justice, and in making our system of justice fair and available to all. David Lash is the 2012 recipient of the Jack Londen Public Service Award, presented each year to an outstanding attorney in the private sector who exemplifies a commitment to public service. Through David’s leadership, O’Melveny & Myers attorneys use their unique abilities to fight poverty, bring hope, and improve their own lives by being enriched through the services they render. David’s work brings our community together with one mind, with one heart, pursuing one dream - bringing equal access to justice wherever we are able. On behalf of the OneJustice Board of Directors, Advisory Board, and staff, I thank all of you for celebrating the work of our honorees this evening and for your role in the OneJustice network. Sincerely,

Judi McManigal Board Chair

Associate Justice Kathryn M. Werdegar The Honorable Kathryn M. Werdegar was appointed to the California Supreme Court by Governor Wilson on May 3, 1994. In November 2002, she was re-elected to a new term of office that began on January 7, 2003. Prior to her elevation to the Supreme Court, she served on the First District Court of Appeal in San Francisco. Justice Werdegar’s career highlights include service with the United States Department of Justice in Washington, D.C.; director of the criminal law division of California Continuing Education of the Bar; senior staff attorney with the California Court of Appeal and the California Supreme Court; and professor and Associate Dean for Academic and Student Affairs at the University of San Francisco School of Law. Justice Werdegar was first in her class at the University of California, Berkeley School of Law (Boalt Hall) and the first woman to be elected editor-in-chief of the California Law Review. She completed her law studies at George Washington University, where she graduated first in her class. She received her B.A. (with honors) from the University of California at Berkeley. She is a life member of the Order of the Coif and the recipient of five American Jurisprudence Awards. Justice Werdegar has written a wide variety of publications addressing such issues as the relationship between the courts and private alternative dispute resolution, the value of diversity in the judicial system, and California criminal procedure. Under the auspices of the Center for Judicial Education and Research, she authored a benchbook on misdemeanor procedure for trial court judges that has served as a model throughout the state. Justice Werdegar is a member of the American Law Institute, the National Association of Women Judges, the California/Nevada Women Judges Association, and the California Judges Association.

Recipient of the Jack Londen Public Service Award

David Lash O’Melveny & Myers LLP

David is Managing Counsel of public interest and pro bono services at O’Melveny & Myers LLP, and manages the firm’s nationwide pro bono program and oversees its substantive and administrative growth. Under his leadership, O’Melveny’s program has been the recipient of the American Bar Association’s prestigious Pro Bono Publico Award and has been recognized as one of the top 10 pro bono programs in the United States. David is a member of the Leadership Council of the Association of Pro Bono Counsel (APBCO). Prior to joining O’Melveny, he served as Executive Director of Bet Tzedek Legal Services in Los Angeles. David is the 2012 recipient of the Jack Londen Public Service award, given annually to an attorney in the private sector for outstanding leadership in increasing access to justice, pro bono, and support for the legal services community David is an active participant in OneJustice’s statewide Pro Bono Initiative, including as Chair of the multi-year Writing Group responsible for the drafting and publication of the “California Pro Bono Best Practices Guide.” He has been a speaker and facilitator at all of OneJustice’s statewide Pro Bono Summits and Conferences over the last five years and is a member of OneJustice’s Southern California Advisory Committee, offering guidance as OneJustice opened its Los Angeles office last year. David also offered riveting opening testimony at the Los Angeles Hearing on California’s Civil Justice Crisis about the importance of legal services for low-income families, seniors, and persons with disabilities. For the last several years David has served as the Co-Chair of the State Bar’s Legal Services Trust Fund Commission, which oversees distribution of legal services grants. During these difficult years of significantly decreased revenue, David’s leadership has resulted in a strategic use of income and reserves in order to buffer cuts in funding while ensuring the program’s long-term financial stability. David’s work supports lawyers throughout California and the United States in using their skills, time, and energy to protect families from becoming homeless, support Holocaust survivors, keep women and children safe from abuse, fight poverty, and otherwise bring hope to those in need. OneJustice is proud and thankful to have David as a key leader in the OneJustice network. Thank you, David!

Beth Jay Supreme Court of California Beth J. Jay serves as Principal Attorney to the Chief Justice of California, Tani Cantil-Sakauye. In that role, she works with the Chief Justice on policy and administrative matters relating to the court and the judicial branch. Beth also serves as the court’s liaison to the State Bar of California and the Commission on Judicial Performance, and works closely with the Judicial Council and Administrative Office of the Courts. She has served as the court’s representative on numerous committees considering issues such as judicial ethics, procedures in death penalty appeals and related habeas corpus proceedings, publication of Court of Appeal opinions, multi-jurisdictional practice, law school accreditation, and attorney insurance disclosure. She is a long-time member and former president of the McFetridge Inn of Court, a group dedicated to mentoring and improving the skills of younger lawyers. Beth previously served as Principal Attorney to former Chief Justice Ronald George, working closely with him as he led crucial changes in the judicial branch, including state funding, trial court unification, and the state’s assumption of responsibility for trial court facilities. She previously served as supervising attorney for former Chief Justice Malcolm Lucas and as a research attorney for both Lucas, when he was an Associate Justice, and former Associate Justice Frank Richardson. Beth is a member of both the Executive Group and Advisory Committee for the Hearings on California Civil Justice Crisis Project, which was staffed by OneJustice and co-sponsored by the California Chamber of Commerce, California Commission on Access to Justice, and the State Bar of California. These public hearings demonstrated the fundamental role of the courts and legal assistance in society and explored the devastating effects of chronic underfunding and budget cuts. Beth has improved the administration of, and access to, justice, by taking a leadership role in important initiatives regarding pending legislation affecting the courts, the role of the State Bar, strategic planning for the branch, ensuring quality representation for death row appellants, and independence of the judiciary. Beth’s drive and passion stems from a deep-seated belief in public service, in justice, and in making our system of justice fair and available to all. OneJustice is honored to partner with her in our shared efforts to ensure a fully-funded legal system that truly provides the means for people to vindicate their rights, have their stories heard, and obtain the relief they deserve and need. Thank you, Beth! 19

Diane T. Chin Stanford Law School Diane T. Chin oversees Stanford Law School’s John and Terry Levin Center for Public Service and Public Interest Law. She also teaches, coordinates Stanford’s public interest curriculum, and engages in external relations and fundraising. Like OneJustice, Diane is committed to creating a pipeline for the next generation of public interest advocates and supporting them in their work. At Stanford, Diane hears almost daily from current students and graduates about victories they have achieved, ranging from success for individual clients to systemic reform of an area of law. Diane was previously the director of Equal Justice Works/West, the first regional office of the national organization, associate director of the Thelton E. Henderson Center for Social Justice at the UC Berkeley School of Law, and executive director of Chinese for Affirmative Action. Diane began her law career as a staff attorney and Skadden Fellow for the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law of the Boston Bar Association and then as a staff attorney for the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights of the San Francisco Bay Area. Later she worked as a housing attorney for Protection & Advocacy, Inc. and as a senior trial attorney for the Office of Citizen Complaints for the San Francisco Police Commission. Diane is a frequent partner in OneJustice’s programs and work. Under Diane’s leadership, Stanford Law School is a cornerstone participant in the Justice Bus Project, which brings law student volunteers from urban areas to provide legal help to rural and isolated Californians. Diane regularly speaks as part of OneJustice’s Executive Fellows program on the challenges of being an executive director, and her opening testimony on the state of civil legal services in California provided vitally important context for the San Francisco Hearing on California’s Civil Justice Crisis. OneJustice deeply appreciates Diane’s partnership and leadership in supporting the over 100 legal services organizations and over 800 legal services lawyers who provide lifechanging services to those who otherwise would not be able to maintain housing, access benefits, or keep their families out of harm’s way. Thank you, Diane!
