On September 25, 2015, the WSBA International Practice Section’s (IPS) joint event of the Reception for Foreign Lawyers and Law Students and the Annual General Meeting took place at William Gates Hall of the University of Washington School of Law. Starting with a warm welcome by Dr. Dana Raigrodski, Executive Director of Global Affairs at UW School of Law, about 100 attendees enjoyed conversation and networking among foreign law students, foreign lawyers, and local practitioners. During the AGM two new members were elected to the Executive Committee, and Fraser Mendel replaced Jim Clack as Chair. Fraser emphasized that the IPS’s goals for this coming year would reflect a redoubling of efforts to increase the value of the Section to IPS members, to partner with other organizations on joint-events to provide enhanced programming and networking opportunities, and to keep the Section on a fiscally healthy course. The full slate of IPS Executive Committee members can be found at the Executive Committee page of the Global Gavel.
