The SDCBA is proud to welcome Oscar-winning actor Richard Dreyfuss as the keynote speaker for this year's Law Week Luncheon & Celebration of Community Service. Dreyfuss, through his nonprofit entity The Dreyfuss Initiative, seeks to "revive, elevate and enhance the teaching of civics in public schools," which has long been a part of the SDCBA's community outreach.
Along with highlighting some of the SDCBA's civics education programs, recipients of the Bar's 2014 Service Awards will be honored and winners of the student Poster and Essay Contest will be recognized.
