Santa Barbara Paralegal Association announces that in honor of the upcoming 35th anniversary of SBPA’S founding, California State Senator Hannah Beth Jackson will officiate at our annual installation of officers and buffet dinner event on January 24, 2014, at Le Café Stella in Santa Barbara, California. In addition, Senator Jackson will speak on legislative matters of current interest to paralegals and other members of the legal community, for which one hour of MCLE credit will be afforded.*

Because of very limited seating capacity and an anticipated strong demand for reservations to this event, early RSVPs and advance payment are highly recommended. Once seating capacity has been reached, all other reservation requests will be declined.
