Salute the rising leaders of the profession

On Tuesday, May 22, Minnesota Lawyer will have its 7th annual Up & Coming Attorneys Awards luncheon at the Hyatt Regency in Minneapolis, starting at 11:30 a.m.

This year we are recognizing 20 outstanding newer lawyers (admitted within the last 10 years) who have stood out from the crowd. This event is an excellent way to network with some of the rising leaders in the profession and to learn about some of their accomplishments. I usually walk away with a good feeling about the legal profession and a sense that the future of the bar is in excellent hands. I am told that a couple of hundred guests have already signed up.

As an added bonus(?) the awards will be presented by the Minnesota Lawyer editorial staff -- the same folks whom I am sure you have already grown to know and love through our postings on this blog. While I would not presume to speak for my esteemed colleagues, I promise to be short and to the point -- or at least 5'11 and in the general vicinity of the point, anyway ...

For more information about the luncheon event, click here. Hope to see you there!

None of your links work.

Thanks for letting me know you experienced a problem.

The links actually are working, but the Minnesota Lawyer website was temporarily not working. You can hardly blame it. It is difficult enough for us human beings to work on a Friday afternoon ...

Thanks Mark. I was the one who wrote earlier about the links. I check this blog often and I really appreciate all your comments and work to get this up and running. I have spread the word to other fellow law students to this site and they have shared with me similar praise.

Hi, Amy -- Thanks for the kind words and feedback! While we try to make these posts interesting, informative and occasionally even fun (as much fun as lawyers can have, anyway), it is the interactivity and participation of folks such as yourself that really make this medium work. Blog on!
