Albany Law School’s Black Law Student Association (BLSA) is working in conjunction with multiple minority bar associations across the state to host an informative panel discussion about how to become a judge. This panel will feature judges from New York City and upstate New York. Most importantly, many of our minority alumni will be there to talk about their experiences, how they got to the bench, and their views about diversity in our judicial system. Get the unique opportunity to meet together, network and gain insight about the field from some very interesting people!
This event is taking place during the Black and Hispanic Legislative Caucus weekend seminars on Saturday, Feb. 18 in the Assembly Parlor from 3:30-4:45.

Additionally, if you are a member of BLSA, you have the opportunity to serve as a volunteer to check judges in, and help out at the reception that will take place at the Hilton after the panel. If you are interested, please email Racquel Saddler, ’18 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
