Judge William A. Ingram
Judge William A. Ingram served as a Judge of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California for twenty-six years, including three years as its Chief Judge. The William A. Ingram Inn of Court, which draws its pupils from Stanford, Santa Clara and Lincoln Law Schools, was renamed to honor Judge Ingram, one of the Inn’s founders, and Judge Ingram’s family designated the Inn to receive memorial contributions to endow this Memorial Symposium.
Judge Ingram was a mentor to many lawyers and judges in our community, and the Inn and this symposium seek to promote the ideals of civility, collegiality, and professionalism that he personified.

Come join the conversation with Santa Clara Law’s 11th annual Diversity Gala on February 12th. Join us in recognizing renowned leaders in the legal profession. The Diversity Gala was developed to inspire organization leaders and students to hold a meaningful conversation regarding diversity and inclusion in the legal profession. This year, we are proud to announce Dorian Daley, Senior Vice President, General Counsel, and Secretary of Oracle Corporation, as the Chair of this event!
Event sponsors fund the Thurgood Marshall Civil Rights Scholarship, which is awarded to law students who demonstrate a commitment to equality, inclusion, and social justice for the most disadvantaged members of our society. As a result of the generous support of the sponsors of the 10th Annual Diversity Gala, we were able to raise more than $40,000 to support the Thurgood Marshall Civil Rights Scholarship Fund.
We invite you to support the Gala and increase your organization’s profile on the Santa Clara Law campus by becoming an event sponsor. To find more information about sponsorship opportunities click here. Please feel free to contact Vicki Huebner, Assistant Dean, Office of Career Management regarding sponsorships at (408) 551-1896 or email@example.com.
