Our next lunch and learn is on Tuesday, September 19th from 11:30 – 12:45, and will be a little different than our last meeting.
Many of you are familiar with our speaker, who will be Associate Professor Ruth Stevens from GVSU. We are excited for her to speak and we will be joining her daytime capstone class, so there will be some students attending. We believe this will be a great opportunity for our Section to network with the students who may become futu...re members.
The topic will be “Developments Regarding Licensing and Independent Practice by Paralegals.” We may also have the opportunity for some generalized discussion, time permitting.
Ruth’s class is located on the Pew Campus in Room 117E on the ground floor of Building E.
Please RSVP so that we can determine the number of parking passes and the number of lunches to order.
We are looking forward to the discussion and hope to see all of you there!
In the meantime, if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions for future topics and discussions, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We would really like to get your feedback, positive or negative.
Our apologies, but the date has changed for our next meeting. It will now be Tuesday, September 19.
