Los Angeles Lady Lawyer Purchases WNBA Sparks - Dec 2006

Thank you to all the Lady Lawyers who participated in the First Annual LA Lady Lawyers Tournament (as a player or volunteer!)  Your enthusiasm made the day so much fun, and I hope the aching muscles, bruises, and split chins are healing nicely.  Thanks to the UCLA Women's Law Union for their support, and congrats to Team Five for going undefeated on the day (good luck trying to defend your title next year -- we'll all be gunning for you!)  Congratulations are also in order for Denica Anderson, Melissa Banda, and Casandra Furey for winning the LA Sparks autographed jerseys!  Check out a fun recap on the LA Sparks webpage and view photos here.

Over forty-five local lady lawyers and law students participated, hailing
from fifteen law schools, nine law firms, twenty-seven undergraduate institutions, twelve hometown states, and two foreign countries. 

************************

We are looking for athletic female lawyers from Los Angeles area law firms, law schools, and other law-related careers to play in the First Annual "Get in the Game" Lady Lawyers Basketball Tournament on Sunday, March 11th at UCLA's SAC Gym from 10am-2pm.

All abilities are welcome -- our goal is just to get us Lady Lawyers and our friends out on the court to have a good time.  The cost is $15 for current law students and $25 for lawyers/ladies with jobs, and law firms are also invited to sponsor teams.

 

Answers to a Few Frequently Asked Questions


What's this all about?
The first "Get in the Game" Lady Lawyers Basketball Tournament, held at
Georgetown University in April 2006, was a remarkable success.   Weekly Lady Lawyers Leagues and tournaments have followed both in Washington, DC and San Francisco, CA.  Building on the enthusiasm of the over 350 Lady Lawyers who have been involved in the first year, "Get in the Game" is in the process of becoming a 501(c)(3) organization that will focus on providing athletic, networking and mentoring activities for lady lawyers and law students in California and Washington, DC.   

I love this idea, but I can't play that Sunday.  Can I still be involved?  Absolutely.  Email getinthegamehoops@gmail.com to be added to the mailing list.

How much will the tourney cost?

I haven't played in years / I haven't played ever.  What will the level of competition be like?

ALL levels of experience are welcome.  We will work to create balanced teams.  There's no better way to learn than to just get in the game!  

 

We don't have enough players for a team at our firm. 
No problem!  We are going to team up interested individuals with students from their alma mater and other lady lawyers, so there is no need to have a pre-formed team.

 

We have an entire team of ladies just from our firm/our law school… can we play together? 
Absolutely.  That's great that you have so much interest!

 

We're really excited about this idea.  Are you looking for law firms/organizations to sponsor the tournament?  Definitely.  Email getinthegamehoops@gmail.com for more information.
