CCBA is pleased to announce its August MCLE Webinar!

“Changes in Sex Case Laws”

presented by Laura Arnold


Laura Arnold has dedicated the past quarter-century of her life to battling unjust, irrational, and unconstitutional laws and government actions.
She started as a deputy public defender with San Diego County in 1995. In 2013, she moved to Riverside County and assumed leadership of the Public Defender’s Writs & Appeals Unit. In February, 2019, Laura was appointed Chief Public Defender for Stanislaus County. She resigned from that position last month and once again assumes the title of "Deputy Public Defender" (handling PC 1170.95 proceedings for San Diego County).
She is the President of the California Public Defender’s Association and, since 2016, has been serving, by appointment of the Chief Justice of the California Supreme Court, as one of two criminal defense attorneys on the Criminal Law Advisory Committee to the California Judicial Council. Her two teenaged daughters are aptly named “Brady” and “Miranda”.
Since 2006, Laura has presented statewide regarding postconviction consequences of sex crimes convictions. Laura enjoys nothing more than helping good lawyers to great work for their clients and is excited to be presenting to the CCBA.
