As followers of this blog know, we have been on the trail with the Minnesota State Bar Association as it has crisscrossed the state for its “Nine Days in June” convention. The new format has worked well, attracting 1,500 people, a six-fold increase over last year.
When I was at the 3rd District Bar event in Olmsted County yesterday, I was feeling a bit like, “If this is Tuesday, this must be Rochester.” But it’s been a great tour. Kudos to the MSBA officers and staff — including Exec Direc Tim Groshens, Pres. Leo Brisbois and, of course, Joni Fenner, the MSBA staffer who magically pulls it all together.
It all wraps up tomorrow at Target Field with a bunch of interesting CLEs, lunch, visits from legal writing guru Bryn Garner, former Minnesota Twin Kent Hrbek and, the President’s Reception Thursday night. (Click here for full agenda.) It’s about as close as you’ll get to the legal community’s version of the Great Get Together.
I’m told that it’s not too late to sign up and join more than 500 of your colleagues from all over the state. (This is the only statewide event.) For registration info, click here.
