This week at the Law School a variety of events are planned.  We have two luncheons in our “Life of a Lawyer” series. The first is onn Monday, March 22th in room 107 at 1:00. Join in a lunch discussion with Ms. Jeter-Boldt ’07, Staff Attorney with the Missouri Housing Development Commission in Kansas City, Missouri.  The Commission is dedicated to strengthening communities and the lives of Missourians through the financing, development and preservation of affordable housing. Anyone thinking of state government or public interest will find this luncheon very benefical.

On Friday, March 15th at 1:00 in room 107 the “Life of a Lawyer” luncheon will be with Managing Attorney of the Immigration Law Project, Kim Allen Murray.  Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how Legal Services of Eastern Missouri assists the immigrant population.  Learn more about the variety of work Ms. Murray does from representation at a variety of proceedings relating to relative, refugee, and fiancée visa petitions, to  cases under the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2002,  to representation in removal cases, waiver applications, naturalization, and employment authorization.

The “Life of a Lawyer” series brings attorneys to the law school to meet with students in small, informal settings.  The attorneys typically talk about their path to and in the profession and respond to questions from students. It also serves as a good opportunity to network.  Lunch is always provided, so please RSVP through Symplicity so we will order correctly.  Let us know if you have special dietary requirements by email
