2023 President’s Message by Angela Zanin

A goccia a goccia se fa il mare. Little by little wonders are made.—Italian Proverb.  Since the founding of the Italian American Lawyers Association (IALA) in 1977, we have witnessed amazing progress on diversity and inclusion for the Italian American community in Los Angeles.  I am honored to begin my tenure as the 2023 President of IALA and continuethese strides.  Italy and Italian American culture have a special place in my heart. My Italian roots originate from a small and picturesque town outside of Venice called Asolo. In college, I had the opportunity to teach English in an Italian high school in Milan.  I look forward to a year with IALA not only celebrating Italian culture, but also addressing and highlighting the needs of our legal community in the Ninth Circuit, the Central District ofCalifornia, the California Supreme and Appellate Courts, and the Los Angeles Superior Court. I am grateful to my Officers, the Board of Governors, and all of the devoted Past IALA Presidents that came before me. We are off to a terrific start with events honoring the new Presiding Judge of the Los Angles Superior Court Samantha Jessner and a Celebration of Women’s HistoryMonth with two Italian American female lawyers, the lead attorneys from the Harvey Weinstein trial in New York. IALA’s goal is to celebrate our shared cultural background as lawyers, and to promote diversity
