Each year our San Diego attorneys step up to take on leadership positions to represent and assist the San Diego legal community, and general community at large. IABA SD's 2022 Board of Directors will undoubtably continue the great work this chapter has engaged in since its inception over 10 years ago.

Special thanks and recognition to past board members for volunteering their time and energy to make great things happen in our community, including networking mixers, MCLEs, career and education panels, law student mentorship, sponsorship of our sister organizations and charity fundraisers. These efforts bring our community closer together and allow us to give back in small, but impactful ways.

Congratulations again to the 2022 Board of Directors! We look forward to an amazing year ahead.

Happy Nowruz, the Persian New Year, from us to you and to your families! 🌸🌺🌺🌸Nowruz, the festival of the spring equinox, means “new day” in Persian. This ancient festival has been celebrated for at least 3,000 years. Nowadays, Nowruz is celebrated by Iranians of virtually all different religions and ethnicities, across the globe. It is observed in many countries and regions, such as Iran, Kurdistan, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan.

Bucs' female coaches look forward to the day they are "no longer newsworthy" - ProFootballTalk

Iranian American women making history!

For the first time ever, this year’s Super Bowl will include two full-time female coaches, including Iranian American Maral Javadifar.

Javadifar's parents are Iranian immigrants who fled Iran after the revolution and came to the U.S. hoping for a brighter future. After a childhood in the U.S., Javadifar, known as MJ, became a college basketball player who went on to earn a doctorate in physical therapy along with a degree in molecular biology.

Kate Sowers became the first female coach in a Super Bowl a year ago with the 49ers. This year, Maral Javadifar and Lori Locust are coaching in the big game for the Bucs. Javadifar (pictured) is the team’s assistant strength and conditioning coach and Locust the assistant defensive line coach. “...

Breaking: Today, U.S. District Court Judge Hilton dismissed all criminal charges against U.S. Park Police officers who fatally shot unarmed Bijan Ghaisar in 2017. IABA is deeply dismayed by the court’s decision, which fails to hold the police officers accountable by granting them immunity under the Supremacy Clause. Bjian and his family deserve justice, and their day in court before a jury for his untimely death. The Virginia Attorney General and the Fairfax County commonwealth are appealing the case to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Membership Spotlight: Kevin Kian Hosn. Kevin Kian Hosn is a Deputy Attorney General at the California Department of Justice in Los Angeles. In this capacity, Mr. Hosn counsels and represents approximately 100 state agencies in matters including government law, employment law, and general civil litigation from the initial pleading stage through appeal. An experienced civil litigator, Mr. Hosn has broad experience both defending and prosecuting civil actions. Mr. Hosn has prepared the appellate briefs, presented oral argument, and prevailed in the California Supreme Court and four of the six California Courts of Appeal. Prior to joining the California Department of Justice, Mr. Hosn worked as a Trial Attorney at the United States Department of Justice in Washington, D.C. At the Justice Department, Mr. Hosn investigated and litigated federal civil rights claims against local and state governments in approximately thirty federal districts. The national scope of this practice afforded Mr. Hosn the unique opportunity to interact with, and learn from, various individuals in small communities in the Midwest and the South. Prior to pursuing a career in the public sector, he worked as an associate attorney in civil litigation firms in Southern California, as an in-house attorney in the legal department of a large corporation, and as a judicial extern to two bankruptcy judges. The early exposure to public service planted the seed for his career path. When asked about his decision to pursue public service, Mr. Hosn responded: “Over the years I have found government work to be quite rewarding. I have noticed that serving the public often captures the essence of an attorney’s role in society. I believe that law schools and bar associations should actively encourage law students and attorneys to explore careers in public service.” Mr. Hosn is an advisor to the California Lawyers Association’s Labor & Employment Law Section, where he previously served a three-year term as a member of its Executive Committee. Mr. Hosn is the Executive Editor and a former Editor-in-Chief of the California Labor & Employment Law Review. He is also a contributing author to the California Public Sector Employment Law, a LexisNexis publication. Mr. Hosn emigrated from Iran at a young age. He is fluent in Farsi and a member of the Iranian American Bar Association – Orange County. Mr. Hosn obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from the University of California at Irvine in 1995. He graduated from the University of San Diego School of Law in 1998 and was admitted to the California State Bar later that year.

BREAKING: The jury in the Derek Chauvin trial has rendered a verdict, finding him guilty on all three counts in the killing of George Floyd: second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and manslaughter. The verdict, which came after a long trial, is a critical step towards accountability. Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison, whose office served as the prosecutors in the trial stated: “I would not call today’s verdict justice because justice implies true restoration. But I would call it accountability. And the cause of justice is in your hands...in the hands of the people of the United States.” As attorneys we know that the fight for racial justice and civil rights is not resolved by one verdict in one case – it is an ongoing endeavor for our society, and one in which we must all do our part. https://www.naacpldf.org/press-release/ldf-issues-statement-on-conviction-of-derek-chauvin-on-all-charges-for-killing-of-george-floyd/ IABA Northern California IABA OC Chapter IABA Los Angeles Iranian American Bar Association - IABA- Phoenix Chapter Iranian American Bar Association - New York Chapter National Iranian American Law Student Association Iranian American Bar Association San Diego Chapter Iaba OC IABA DC
