The UCSB English Department Presents
Careers in Law: “Why the Law?”
UCSB Alumni and Retired Santa Barbara County Superior
Court Judge Frank J. Ochoa leads this interactive forum on
considering a career in law.
Judge Ochoa earned his Bachelor of Arts in English and History
at UCSB, and graduated from the UC Davis School of Law in
1975. Judge Ochoa was Executive Director of the Legal Aid
Foundation of Santa Barbara County. In 1983, he was appointed
to the Municipal Court by Governor Brown—making him the
youngest judge in the state at the time. Judge Ochoa was
elected to the Superior Court of Santa Barbara in 1996, and
retired from the bench in 2015.
