California Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye to Speak in Santa Barbara

Southern California Institute of Law marking its 25th anniversary

The Honorable Tani Cantil-Sakauye, chief justice of the California Supreme Court, will be the featured speaker at the graduation ceremonies of the Southern California Institute of Law, at 3 p.m. Saturday, June 11 at The Granada, 1214 State St. in Santa Barbara.

This year the institute, accredited by the State Bar of California, will be celebrating 25 years since it was founded in 1986. There will be 20 graduating students this year.

The law school, with campuses in Santa Barbara and Ventura, has nearly 300 alumni, and many of its graduates and alumni attorneys, who include a large cross-section of minorities, women, single-parents, business owners and professionals, have gone on to the practice of law or work in government, business or education.

Desmond O’Neill is the vice dean of the Santa Barbara campus and Dr. Stanislaus Pulle is dean of the school. The tuition at the law school is the lowest among all State Bar accredited law schools, and as Pulle says, “allows students to graduate debt-free” and helps “broaden access to legal education” as part of the law school’s mission.

Those wishing to attend the graduation will be freely admitted. No ticket is necessary. Those wishing to attend the graduation dinner at Fess Parker’s DoubleTree Resort in Santa Barbara may purchase tickets by calling 805.963.4654 in Santa Barbara or 805.644.2327 in Ventura.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
