Rodriguez, Luis
Luis Rodriguez ’89, J.D. ’92 is the first Latino and the first active public defender elected to be president of the State Bar of California, which regulates more than 237,000 attorneys in the state.
 
"I'm the first Latino and that's something to celebrate, especially in the state of California but at the same time, it's a stark reminder of how long it takes for certain groups to move up and become part of the leadership of the community," said Rodriguez.
 
The Los Angeles native, who was the first in his family to attend college, came to believe the best way to help his family and give the disadvantaged a voice was by getting a formal education and becoming an advocate of the legal system. 
 
Rodriguez was admitted to the State Bar in 1994. He is a former president of the California La Raza Lawyers Association, the Mexican American Bar Association, and the Latino Public Defenders Association.

Bertone, Laura
Laura Bertone '89 was recently interviewed by the newspaper Catholic San Francisco. With about 100 parish communities, the Archdiocese of San Francisco could well be the site of some 1,400 Masses and prayer and devotional services per week, and that’s a conservative estimate. Laura Bertone, director, Office of Worship for the archdiocese, helps all of it take place.
 
Laura spent 20 years around the world auditing for Bank of America but always felt called to liturgy. Her responsiblities include advising the archbishop on matters of liturgical policy; preparing and organizing all large archdiocesan liturgies such as chrism Mass, ordinations, and Rite of Election; and certifying and training lay liturgical ministers so that they are properly prepared. Laura said she is “amazed that I get to do this job. I work with and for great people and it’s an honor and joy to come into work each day.”
