Location is: Sheppard Mullin 501 West Broadway 19th Floor San Diego, CA 92101. Breakfast and beverages will be provided.


Thank you to everyone that attended our inaugural meeting! The turnout exceeded our expectations with over 20+ Notre Dame attorneys attending. Each attorney was asked to bring one new attorney to our next meeting in January. We hope to grow our network to 30 – 35 active attorneys.

For those that were unable to attend here is what you missed. As part of our monthly format, each member joined a three-person group called a “Trinity” to meet for breakfast, lunch or dinner next month to get to know each other in a smaller setting. These Trinities will be an invaluable part of strengthening our networks and helping mentor newer attorneys.

We spent time introducing ourselves and our respective practices to each other with the goal of being able to refer business to each other, and also to be a resource for each other in our areas of expertise.

We have an opportunity to be one of Southern California’s first and largest Lawyer Alumni Groups, and we’ve had the full support of the University in making this opportunity a success.

If you are interested in joining our next networking breakfast or getting involved please contact: [email protected] .
