The Honorable Brian R. Van Camp

Sacramento County Superior Court, Department retired

Biography

The Hon. Brian R. Van Camp (Ret.) was a judge for the Sacramento County Superior Court in California. He retired from the bench in 2012.

Van Camp graduated with his B.A. in political science from the University of California, Berkeley in 1962. He went on to earn his LL.B. from the University of California, Berkeley School of Law in 1965.

Van Camp began his legal career in the public sector, working as a deputy attorney general for the California Department of Justice's Office of the Attorney General for two years, before becoming an attorney for the Redevelopment Agency of the City of Sacramento in 1967. After three years there, Van Camp would then serve as the acting secretary for the California Business and Transportation Agency during Ronald Regan's governorship. After serving a year in that capacity, Van Camp would end his time in the public sector working as the California Commissioner of Corporations from 1971 to 1974.

Van Camp then entered the private arena in 1975, when he joined the law firm of Diepenbrock, Wulff, Plant, and Hannegan, where he would serve as a partner for two years. He also served as a partner at the law firms of Van Camp and Johnson from 1978 to 1990, and Downey, Brand, Seymour, and Rohwer from 1990 to 1997. During his time in private practice, Van Camp specialized in corporate and securities law.

After his retirement from the bench, Van Camp became a neutral for ADR Services, Inc.

He has also been a member of the Judicial Council Advisory Committee on Civil and Small Claims Law.

An avid writer, speaker, and instructor, Van Camp has contributed articles to various legal publications, as well as taught on the subjects of E-Discovery, trial practices, corporate, business, and international law.
