Judge Aviva Bobb '71 Wins Access to Justice Award

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Aviva Bobb '71 received the 2005 Benjamin Aranda III Access to Justice Award honoring the longtime advocate of fairness and access in the state's family courts. Bobb, who has served on the bench since 1980, accepted the award from California Supreme Court Chief Justice Ronald George during a September 10 luncheon at the Statewide Judicial Branch Conference.

A family law supervising judge from 2000 to 2004, Bobb worked to make the family law system more friendly and accessible to self-represented litigants and more responsive to the needs of all litigants, regardless of financial resources. The award is co-sponsored by the Judicial Council, the California State Bar, and the California Judges Association, in association with the California Commission on Access to Justice.
