The LA Chapter of Thomas Jefferson School of Law Alumni Association took the opportunity to meet one last time before the end of the year.  The group gathered at Cafe Entourage in Hollywood and combined efforts to support a family in need.

Through the DPSS (Department of Public Social Services), the LA Chapter participated in the Adopt a Family Program, where all group members made cash and gift donations for a worthy cause.

Thus far, the LA Chapter has made great progress reaching out to Thomas Jefferson School of Law Alums, some of whom call their Alma Mater 'Western State’. Heading into the new year, the LA Chapter encourages anyone who is interested in networking and mingling at the next mixer in the Los Angeles area, to contact Mona Mahdara Alcala’ and Sterling Williams at
