Judge Kevin Brazile, first African American Presiding Judge of Los Angeles Superior Court, Honored by UCLA Black Alumni Association

The UCLA Black Alumni Association (UBAA) hosted the Winston C. Doby Legacy Scholarship Reception on February 27th to recognize Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Kevin Brazile, UCLA alum and the first African American presiding judge of the Los Angeles County Superior Court. 
“Judge Brazile is Black Bruin excellence,” said Robert Grace, UCLA Black Alumni Association Board Chairperson.  “The UBAA legal community is celebrating Judge Brazile while raising much-needed scholarship funds to usher in the next generation of Black Bruin scholars.”
Brazile, recently appointed to the NAPCO Board, graduated cum laude from UCLA in 1980 with a B.A. in political science, and earned his J.D. in 1983 from the UCLA School of Law.  He was appointed as a judge in 2003 by then-Governor Gray Davis.  The LA Superior Court was one of the founding member courts, in 1963, of the National Conference of Metropolitan Courts (NCMC), the predecessor organization of NAPCO.
