 Conference Rooms

Conference rooms are available at both the Oakland and Hayward ACLL locations – a few steps from the courthouses.  (The Oakland location is easily accessible from the Lake Merritt BART station.)  Conference rooms vary in size and cost —  $25 to $45  an hour. The largest can accommodate up to 28 people.  The rooms can be used for:  interviews, depositions, arbitrations, mediations, training classes, and business meetings.  Reservations can be made over multiple days allowing parties to set up trial war rooms near the courthouses.  Food can be brought in to provide a private space for lunch meetings and discussions during your trial.  Resources for last minute legal research are footsteps away.

Contact ACLL admin staff  at 510.272.6483 or nicole.lemieux@acgov.org for information on reservations, equipment, and information for local catering services.

 WHY FAX WON’T DIE  from the site, Stephen’s Lighthouse.

AS LONG AS SOME CONTINUE TO INSIST ON FAXES, COMPANIES KEEP WORKING TO MAKE SENDING A FAX FEEL LIKE YOU’RE NOT SENDING A FAX AT ALL.

1. RELYING ON EXTERNAL SERVICES AND SOFTWARE TO ABSTRACT AWAY THE QUIRKS OF AN UNDERLYING TECHNOLOGY CERTAINLY ISN’T UNIQUE TO FAX.

2. EMAIL IS NOT CONSIDERED TO BE A SECURE MEDIUM, BUT FAX IS, IN TERMS OF SENDING PEOPLE’S MEDICAL INFORMATION AROUND.

3. IN A LOT OF AREAS, THE TRADE-OFF OF IT NOT BEING QUITE AS FAST OR QUITE AS SEXY IS EASILY PAID FOR BY THE FACT THAT IT’S WELL UNDERSTOOD AND IT’S GLITCH-FREE.
