    Keynote Speaker:
    Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer

    Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer has long been one of California's leading lawyers and lawmakers. As L.A.’s chief lawyer and prosecutor since July 2013, he has brought an innovative, problem-solving focus that combines tough and effective prosecution with initiatives to improve public safety and the quality of life throughout the city. Prior to seeking office, Feuer served as the executive director of Bet Tzedek Legal Services, establishing programs to help Alzheimer's patients, victims of the Northridge earthquake, and Holocaust survivors striving to obtain restitution.

    In March 2017, Feuer was re-elected to a second term without opposition. In 2017, the American Bar Association presented its top award in the nation for a public sector law office to Feuer’s office—the first City Attorney’s office ever to receive the distinguished Hodson Award, recognizing “sustained, outstanding performance or a specific and extraordinary service by a government or public sector law office.
