SLA MN Holiday Party!

The annual SLA MN Holiday Party is fast approaching! The event is on December 5, 2016 from 5:30 to 8:30, at HGA Architects and Engineers, 420 5th Street North, Suite 100, Minneapolis, MN. The cost of the party is $20 for students, but SLA members have the option to sponsor students (and several donations have already been received). You will still need to register and pay $20, and depending on how many donations are received, there will be a drawing to reimburse students. This event is an excellent networking opportunity (with really good food and drinks). More details can be found here.

Several people have asked about the possibility of a carpool from St. Kate's. Please send us an email if you are interested in carpooling to the party. 

The SLA Student Group is responsible for putting on the Silent Auction to raise money for a St. Kate's student to attend the SLA Conference. We are currently in the process of soliciting donations from alumni, professionals, and businesses. We will need volunteers to help set up the silent auction on the day of the event! Please let us know if you are interested in helping with the silent auction!

This is a really great event, so we hope to see you all there!

SLA Connect / Fredrikson & Byron Library Open House 10.27.16

By: Karen Mackey 5 days ago
The Fredrikson & Byron Library will host an open house for SLA members on Thursday, Oct 27, starting at 4:00 PM. They'll offer a guided tour of SLA Connect, the new interactive membership platform. Learn how to logon, change the frequency of email delivery, update your profile, and find contact information for other SLA members. Laptops will be available for you to logon and change your settings right away, or you can bring your own laptop.

They will also have a guided tour of their library, which serves the needs of 300 attorneys and paralegals practicing in the areas of corporate and M&A, intellectual property, labor & employment, real estate, bankruptcy, tax, and more. 

Afterwards we’ll head over to the Bank Restaurant at the Westin for networking and drinks. 

Fredrikson & Byron is located in the North Tower of US Bank Plaza. Their views from the 40th floor are spectacular, especially in the fall, and they're right along the light-rail. We hope you can join us for the open house, but you are also welcome to come for only the post-work networking at the Bank. RSVP on Eventbrite accordingly:

Interested in the event but can't make it downtown this day? Send us an email (or reply to this discussion on SLA Connect) with your preferred day and location. If there's enough interest we'll do this again.
