Lesley Weaver Appointed Representative for the Northern District of CaliforniaOctober 1, 2020
The firm is proud to announce that on September 17, 2020, Chief Judge Phyllis J. Hamilton of the United States District Court for the Northern District of California appointed BFA partner Lesley Weaver as one of six Lawyer Representatives for the Northern District of California. Ms. Weaver will serve the upcoming term, 2021 through 2023.
Annually, the Northern District selects a small group of highly qualified and diverse practitioners admitted to the district court to serve as Lawyer Representatives. Serving as a Lawyer Representative presents a unique opportunity for attorneys to draw on their experience as federal practitioners to assist in improving the administration of justice. Lawyer Representatives are presented opportunities to meet and interact on an informal basis with judges and lawyers at the district and circuit levels. These representatives help plan the annual Northern District Judicial Conference and attend the annual Ninth Circuit Judicial Conference.
“I am honored and privileged to be selected as a Lawyer Representative for the Northern District of California,” says Ms. Weaver. “I am looking forward to working with my esteemed and diverse colleagues to enhance the administration of justice.”
