Former NYC Mayor Ed Koch will deliver keynote address
WHITE PLAINS, NY, February 11, 2010 – The American Bar Association Law Student Division (2nd Circuit) will convene its annual Spring Meeting at Pace Law School on Saturday, February 27. The meeting will bring together students, legal professionals and representatives from government for a full day of panel discussions and information sessions on the Law School’s campus in White Plains.
The highlight of the event will be the keynote address, delivered by Edward Koch, former Mayor of New York City, who is expected to discuss his many years of public service and the challenges and opportunities for recent law school graduates.
Additionally, the meeting will feature an exciting presentation by Above the Law editor, Elie Ying Mystal, whose no-holds-barred musings on the current state of the legal profession have garnered the self-described “legal tabloid” mainstream media attention. The Washington Post called Above the Law “a must-read legal blog,” while the American Bar Association’s Journal listed Above the Law in its “Blawg 100: The 100 best web sites by lawyers, for lawyers, as chosen by the editors of the ABA Journal.”
