AAML-NorCal Announces Charitable Contributions for 2012



The Northern California Chapter of AAML puts on its popular Symposium each year featuring high-end and sophisticated presentations to educate and inspire family law attorneys of all levels of expertise. We also provide an annual Trial Practicum, in which our fellows and experts from all over Northern California donate their time to teach young attorneys trial skills and effective, ethical family law practice.

Substantially all of the proceeds from these activities are traditionally donated to local charities who submit applications to our Charitable Donations committee.
