CWL is extremely proud to honor Judge Clare Maier, Contra Costa County Superior Court, with the Rose Bird Memorial Award.  Judge Maier exemplifies the qualities of compassion and courage in a field that is, still, largely dominated by men. She has worked with purpose to improve the legal process and profession, and has become not only a role model to female attorneys and judges, but also an asset to the community due to her outstanding service.
California Women Lawyers instituted the Rose Bird Memorial Award in 2000 in honor of Chief Justice Rose Elizabeth Bird (1936-1999).  Chief Justice Bird was a trailblazer.  She was the first woman deputy public defender in Santa Clara County, the first woman to hold a cabinet-level position in California, and the first female Chief Justice of the California Supreme Court. She was a founding mother of California Women Lawyers.  The award honors judges for judicial excellence, public service and inspiration to women lawyers.
Please join us as we celebrate Judge Maier.  Wine and appetizers will be served.
