Hundreds of students and teachers from Everett Alvarez and North Salinas high schools in Monterey County gathered in the World Theater at California State University, Monterey Bay for a Law Day event featuring Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye.
In a live Q and A, students asked the Chief Justice about her journey to become California’s top judge and the challenges along the way, particularly as the first woman of color in the role.
Former California Supreme Court Justice John A. Arguelles, a member of the Class of 1954, died at his home on April 10. He was 94.
Arguelles was the first UCLA Law alumnus to serve on the state’s highest court and only the second Hispanic Justice on the court.
