The 2016 Convention will continue our tradition of hosting an exciting, informative, and energizing weekend.  Attendees will enjoy a premier venue and Convention activities, programs, and exceptional faculty featuring distinguished local and national speakers, with many opportunities to hear from and interact with colleagues and leaders from the bench and bar.


We have not one, not two, but four keynote-caliber speakers:

Kathryn Ruemmler Kathy is the global co-chair of the White Collar Defense & Investigations Practice and a partner in the Litigation & Trial Department of Latham & Watkins in Washington. She served for six years in the Obama Administration, first in the Department of Justice and later as Counsel to the President. As President Barack Obama’s chief lawyer, she advised on all legal matters implicating domestic and foreign policy and national security, as well as all significant litigation matters.
In that role, Kathy deservedly received the Attorney General’s Award for Exceptional Service, the Department of Justice’s highest award. President Obama has described her as having “an uncanny ability to see around the corners that no one else anticipates.”

Ashlie Beringer:  Ashlie is Vice President and Deputy General Counsel at Facebook, where she leads the Product, Regulatory and Litigation Legal team.
Before joining Facebook, she was a partner in the Palo Alto office of Gibson Dunn.
The Daily Journal named Ashlie one of California’s Top 100 lawyers and repeatedly
has recognized her as one of California’s Top Women Litigators. Law360 named
Ashlie one of five national MVPs in the area of Privacy and Consumer Protection. Sharon Osborne, whom Ashlie represented along with Ozzy when Ashlie was at
Gibson Dunn, wrote in her memoir that “Ashlie Beringer has balls of steel.”

Mary LoVerde:  Mary has traveled worldwide sharing her innovative strategies for staying connected to what matters most as an innovative way of dealing with the
work-life balance conundrum. She has published four books, 
appeared four times on Oprah, done a 20/20 special on stress, and was featured on ABC World News Tonight. She is a professional speaker whose work is published in leading journals including The Wall Street JournalThe New England Journal of Medicine, and The Ladies Home Journal. She also served on the faculty of the University of Colorado School of Medicine for 15 years as the Director of Hypertension Research Center.

Dana Bolger:  Dana is a co-founder and Executive Director of Know Your IX,
where she works to center the voices of student survivors in the national policy conversation on campus sexual assault. She has testified twice before the United States Senate and her writing has appeared in 
The New York TimesWall Street Journal
USA Today, and The Nation. Bolger is herself a recent college graduate, as well as an editor at Feministing.com, where she writes on issues at the intersection of gender, race, and pop culture. Politico Magazine named Dana and her Know Your IX co-founder (along with Pope Francis, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren!) among the Politico Top 50 Influencers of 2015.

We have many other tremendous speakers and topics, including a terrific panel of judges who will speak on our popular annual Judicial Panel as well as present regarding modest means representations. And Court of Appeals Judge Terry Fox will be our Judge In Residence, available to answer questions and provide guidance as desired, all weekend.

The CWBA's prestigious Mary Lathrop Award will be presented during
the Convention on Friday, May 20, 2016.
