MCBA continues to offer a wide variety of programs, still only on Zoom, but we may be within sight of an actual in-person gathering. I’d like to highlight some upcoming events and solicit your input about the past year and what it means for the upcoming year.

MCBA’s April member meeting brought together a powerhouse of local women leaders to discuss current issues affecting Marin County and their efforts at resolving them. Corte Madera Town Council Member Leila Mongan moderated the too-brief hour, covering issues from SMART to the name change of Sir Francis Drake Boulevard.

Spring has sprung, and it is starting to feel like a real, live re-opening is afoot. More of us are emerging from our shelters and returning to social life, partially or fully vaccinated, perhaps feeling a bit blinded and rubbing our eyes in the light at the end of the tunnel, after a solid year spent in the half light of shelter-in-place.

Every year, Legal Aid of Marin and MCBA honor the many volunteers who provide pro bono services “to create a more just and equitable Marin Community.” This year’s event started with a wonderful video montage of volunteers and Legal Aid staff over the years. Legal Aid of Marin Board President Jessica Karner served as the master of ceremonies for the evening and reminded us that this year’s ceremony covers two years, since last year’s was a casualty of the brand-new shelter-in-place orders.

A few days from publication of this issue of the Marin Lawyer will be the one-year anniversary of the first shelter-in-place orders. How and where we are working now looks different not only from before the pandemic but from soon after it started as well. Remote working continues to evolve and it is clear to everyone that some aspects of it will remain when the pandemic is over. In other words, remote working isn’t going away.


Members who make time to meet with their colleagues at MCBA events gain value from local connections and stay current with updates in the courts. Marin Superior Court Judges often comment that the most skilled lawyers are usually active MCBA members.
