MNAPABA Members and Friends:
We have been invited once again to participate in the Federal Bar Association's Open Doors Program -- each spring, the FBA gathers lawyers together to go into local high school classrooms to share their life experiences--the more candid and personal, the better.
A few dozen MNAPABA members have participated over the last few years and we'd love it if even more stepped forward. Last year, St. Paul Public Schools were added to the program, greatly increasing the number of Asian Pacific American students in the classrooms.
Please consider attending the Open Doors Program recruitment and orientation meeting on Wednesday, March 9, 2016, at 4:30 p.m. in the 2nd floor Jury Assembly Room in the Minneapolis Federal Courthouse at 300 South Fourth Street in Minneapolis.
Please click "REGISTER" to let MNAPABA know you'll be attending so we can keep track of your volunteer efforts and we'll also give Magistrate Judge Noel's chambers a head's up that you are going to attend. (registering through us is not required)
At the orientation, you will have an opportunity to sign up for a date and time to visit a high school classroom this spring -- dates and times are pretty flexible.
Thank you for considering this amazing opportunity to share YOUR PERSONAL STORY and give back to our community and help fill our pipeline with APA teens who might one day consider law school!
HERE ARE SOME MORE DETAILS:
