About the Aranda Access to Justice Award
Presented for the first time in 1999, the Aranda Award honors a judge who has demonstrated a long-term commitment to improving access to our courts, and who has significantly improved access for low- and moderate-income Californians. The Judicial Council, the State Bar, and the California Judges Association, in association with the California Commission on Access to Justice, co-sponsor the award. The Aranda Award is named in honor of the late Judge Benjamin Aranda III, who was known for his tireless efforts to promote fairness and access in the courts.
Nominations for the Aranda Award (see 2013 nomination form) are accepted in the Spring and the recipient is announced prior to the presentation of the award at the California Judicial Administration Conference.
