Runoff Candidate: MYANNA DELLINGER

LOS ANGELES COUNTY BAR ASSOCIATION Judicial Elections Evaluation Committee Rating…………..Not Qualified

Occupation or Vocation: Law Professor/Attorney

Website: www.dellingerforjudge.com

Candidate Statement:

I work with numerous different legal issues in front of hundreds of people on a daily basis.  That amounts to hours and hours every week controlling an audience, thinking on my feet about often very complex legal issues, moving people along or slowing them down as needed, and demonstrating how judges apply facts to black-letter law.  I have done so for a decade.  I do not sit behind a desk only appearing occasionally in front of a critical audience.  I do so daily!

I worked with trial and appellate judges during and after law school.  Among other things, I held a highly valuable clerkship on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals (covering California and other jurisdictions).  I kept a criminal docket of 300 criminal cases for a trial judge, helping him achieve faster-than usual case processing times.  I also worked on half of the judge’s civil docket and with his pro se litigants.

I have been a law professor for a decade, training close to 1,500 attorneys how to practice law professionally and ethically.  I have done so full-time for ABA accredited law schools.  I have risen through the ranks to the highest office one can hold for such schools (i.e. full professor of law).

I am neither a prosecutor nor a defense attorney!  I am neutral, which is a big plus.
