A recent publication in The Recorder discussed how Legislature may move that the Board of Governors of the State Bar of California be appointed by politicians rather than elected by members of the profession.
Micha Star Liberty, who represents the California Young Lawyers Association on the Board, was quoted as saying “This is an idea that’s out there. Let’s tread lightly. My thought was, we can’t go to the Legislature and ask for any kind of increase. We have to continue to improve our structural deficiencies and keep things status quo.”
