President's Message
Jan 13, 2022
By Robert Rosborough

Welcome to 2022. And quite a welcome it is. It seems we have more to learn about pandemics. I am hopeful Omicron’s lesson will be shorter than other recent teachings but if we have learned anything, it is to be skeptical of anyone who expresses certainty. I am certain, though (see what I did there?), that flexibility and resilience will continue to be essential to our ability to function, not to mention make progress.

Welcome to another year-end issue of the Marin Lawyer, at the end of another pandemic year. I look forward to being able to report on in-person gatherings instead of solely Zoom ones (but don’t forget the summer BBQ at the Way Station!) Any such reporting I do is likely to be in a president’s message since I am MCBA’s incoming president and its outgoing Marin Lawyer editor.

Well, the time has come for my last message to the membership. I’ll try to keep it short. It has been an honor to serve as your president this past year. I came to the presidency with the goals of supporting our association as a vibrant community and building stronger relationships between our association and the broader Marin community, particularly in the area of pro bono legal services.

Labor and employment law in California has been evolving rapidly in recent years. While perhaps not quite as momentous as some recent years, 2021 saw much legislative activity. Read a summary of the most significant legislation as well as significant legislation that either did not pass or that Governor Newsom vetoed since variations of these laws could still be on the horizon for future passage.

This year, I was asked by a longtime contractor client if I would help him (now, her) obtain a name and gender change order. The name change was not just from Paul to Paula, but also a last name change, as Paula had been adopted and desired to have the born family last name instead, as well as a change of birth certificate in another state. I said yes, we would help.
