Foreign Lawyers Host Program

.

IPS is also seeking host attorneys to participate in this year’s Foreign Lawyers Host Program, which matches local attorneys and judges with a foreign student who is usually a J.D., L.L.M., Ph.D., or visiting scholar from the University of Washington, Seattle University, or Gonzaga University schools of law. Your participation as a host lawyer will not be unduly burdensome. All we ask is that you meet with your foreign student/lawyer at least once.

.

If you would like to participate or would like more information, please email Anamaria Turlea (anamaria@kroontje.net) by 5pm on January 21, 2011 the following information: (1) your business address and telephone number; (2) the area of law you practice in; and (3) whether you have a preference for a foreign student/lawyer representing a particular country.

.

We look forward to seeing you at this year’s reception,
which promises to be lively and informative!
