Oct. 12, 2012 – Leadership and Law: Diverse Perspectives on the Role of Race and Participation in Professional Legal Organizations
UF Levin College of Law, Martin H. Levin Advocacy Center
Noon – 2:30 p.m.
“Leadership and Law” will examine the fact that even today legal bar associations are often divided by color lines, decades after becoming officially integrated. The trend follows from the local level all the way to the national level. The goal of the event is to foster a dialogue on avenues for leadership and joint initiatives that transcend racial and other divides.
The panel will feature leaders from national, state, and local bar associations. Law students and anyone in the legal community are encouraged to attend this CLE-approved event. The deadline to RSVP to this event is Oct. 5, click here to reserve: http://www.law.ufl.edu/alumni/alumni-affairs/events/black-alumni-weekend.
