We are pleased to announce the election of Judge Truc T. Do to the Law Library Board of Trustees. Judge Do replaces The Hon. Yvonne E. Campos, whose term recently expired. Judge Do, from San Diego, came to the bench in 2018 with a mixture of legal experience. Most recently, she was a partner at Jones Day since 2014. She was a partner at Munger, Tolles and Olson from 2009 to 2014. Prior to private practice, Do served as a deputy district attorney at the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office from 1999 to 2009.
Judge Do earned a Juris Doctor degree from Stanford Law School. She filled the vacancy created by the retirement of Judge Joel M. Pressman in March, 2018. She is a member of the board of the San Diego Volunteer Lawyer Program, a member of Lawyers Club, a barrister in the J. Clifford Wallace Inn of Court, and previously served on the board of directors for the California Women’s Law Center.
Judge Do came to the United States as a refugee from Viet Nam when she was three years old. She demonstrated her intellect and work ethic by graduating at the top of her class at UCLA, becoming a standout student at Stanford Law School, and launching a successful career as a practicing lawyer. Her wide ranging experiences in life and the legal profession make her an outstanding choice to serve as a member of the Law Library Board of Trustees.
Our newest judicial trustee will begin her service at the January 2019 meeting. She will be serving along with recently re-elected trustees Judge Kelety and Judge Gill, as well as Judge Berry and Judge Brannigan, who are continuing their terms. We thank them all for their great service to the Law Library and to the people of our county.
