The Minnesota Association for Black Lawyers would like to cordially invite you to our 2nd annual soirée for incoming law students in the Twin Cities area. This event will take place on September 23, 2017 (4:30pm-8:00pm) at the Shindig Event Center.
The soirée is meant to kickoff the school year with an exciting introduction to the Twin Cities area and to give incoming students an early connection to the black professionals who live and work here. Returning 2Ls and 3Ls, as well as recent law school graduates and MABL members are all invited to attend and to get to know the first year students. There will be hors d’oevres, a bar, access to the rooftop, and a short introduction and welcome from local attorneys around 5:30pm.
During our conversations with local law students in previous years, a common theme has been the struggle of finding a cohesive community where they feel supported. This year we’ve seen a significant increase in the number of Black law students at some of the local law schools. We’re excited about this increase, and this is a chance for our membership to support incoming students on their path to academic, professional, and personal success.
Shindig Event Center is located at 105 S 5th Street Minneapolis, MN 55403. The event is sponsored by the Minnesota Association of Black Lawyers and Twin Cities Diversity in Practice. Questions and comments can be directed to Marcel Thompson at firstname.lastname@example.org. RSVP’s are welcome.
