Past Legal Division Events
On Wednesday, June 5, Los Angeles and the Valley hosted close to 280 of the LA area’s top attorneys at the 2013 AIPAC Los Angeles Legal Division Luncheon at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Western States Director, Elliot Brandt, opened the lunch with a brief overview of the latest developments in the Middle East and the important role for lawyers, as naturally skilled advocates, to play in helping to grow the movement. Elliot then introduced Honorable Shelley Berkley, former member of the United States House of Representatives from Nevada’s 1st District, who shared insight from her experience as a leading pro-Israel voice during her seven terms in office and detailed the importance of the U.S.-Israel relationship.
Legal Division Chair, Rick Wynne, thanked everyone in attendance for proudly demonstrating the commitment of the legal community to ensuring Israel’s security. He encouraged the attendees to deepen their engagement with AIPAC and to join the Los Angeles Legal Division by becoming a club member, if they have not already. AIPAC National Political Director, Rob Bassin, shared an insider analysis of political trends, discussed the imperative of pro-Israel political activism and urged attendees to participate in AIPAC’s work to safeguard and strengthen the alliance between America and Israel.
