Alex Weingarten has been elected to the membership of The Chancery Club of Los Angeles. Founded in 1925, the Chancery Club’s membership is composed of distinguished lawyers who are also active in professional, civic, and philanthropic organizations. Inspired in part by the example of the English Inns of court, the Chancery Club members have held positions of honor and responsibility in important legal, judicial, academic, governmental, and civic organizations. For example, many members have served on the Board of Governors of The State Bar of California and on the Board of Trustees of the Los Angeles County Bar Association.
The Club annually hosts the Chief Justice and other members of the Supreme Court of California, the leadership and civil litigation judges of the Los Angeles Superior Court, the justices of the Second Appellate District of the Court of Appeal, the judges of the United States District Court for the Central District of California, the president of the State Bar of California and the president of the Los Angeles County Bar Association. Other speakers have included leading state and local officials, prominent lawyers, leaders of academic institutions, legal scholars and notable figures from business, the arts and the media.
