Law Rocks Global presents the Sixth Annual Law Rocks San Francisco event on April 19, 2018 at The Chapel in San Francisco, featuring seven bands composed of legal professionals in a “Battle of the Bands” benefit for local nonprofits. Lieff Cabraser’s band, The R-23s, will be one of the bands performing at the concert in support of the nonprofit Ms. JD, whose mission is to increase the representation of women in the legal profession.
Each band of rock star lawyers participating at the Law Rocks concert gets to pick a local nonprofit organization to fundraise for. This year’s selection of benefiting organizations include: All Stars Project, Bay Area Youth EMT Program, Blue Bear School of Music, Child Advocates, Rocket Dog Rescue, Ms. JD, Family Violence Appellate Project, and St. Anthony Foundation.
Law Rocks has toured the Bay Area every year since 2013. This unique concert event plays to crowds of legal professionals and has raised nearly $300,000 for amazing local nonprofit organizations. 2018 promises to be an exciting night that will feature ten bands, all battling it out for charity.
