Our Fall Kick-off event this year will be a social at Axel’s Bonfire Grill at 850 Grand Avenue in St. Paul, where we have had events several times in the past. The social will be on Thursday, October 12 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Appetizers will be provided and there is a cash bar available for the drinks of your choice. This is a great time for law students to meet the lawyers and make some great connections! All are welcome.
The annual National CLS Conference, will be in Newport Beach, California from October 26-29. Go to the CLS national website and click on the picture with the heading “Discovering Joy in the Law” for information, and to access the registration materials. Register soon and reserve your hotel room before they are gone. This is a great and life-changing conference. Talk to Ted Landwehr, our president, Anthony Bushnell, our national board representative, or Paul Baertschi, to hear of our experiences and why we keep going back.
Save the date of Wednesday, January 24, 2018 for our annual meeting, probably a breakfast meeting, but we will let you know as soon as arrangements are made. Let us know if you would like to serve on our Board of Directors. We currently meet on the second Monday of the month during most months and have options for people to call in.
The second annual Midwest Regional Retreat for CLS is scheduled for February 2-4, 2018 in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. This is a great opportunity to meet with the lawyers in the Chicago area, who are very influential in CLS and are a smart and fun-loving bunch! Last year, Board member Tom Borash, Anthony Bushnell and family, and Paul Baertschi attended. In spite of a lack of snow, it was great fun and we learned a lot.
