Judge Elizabeth White has her bases covered. Having worked as both a paralegal and an attorney, White is currently a judge with the Los Angeles Superior Court's South District, which includes Long Beach and San Pedro.

I have what is called a general jurisdiction civil assignment, which means I handle cases which have in controversy $25,000 or more; so it could be a relatively small personal injury case, or it could be a large construction dispute or a Jones Act case dealing with a seaman who's been injured or killed at sea," she said. "[There are a] wide, wide, wide variety of civil suits."

White completed the paralegal program at UCLA Extension in 1977 and went on to work as a paralegal at Loeb & Loeb for a year and a half. She said the skills she learned as a paralegal student and as a working paralegal have helped her greatly as both a lawyer and a judge.
