BUSINESS LAW SECTION (BLS) OF THE FLORIDA BAR: VIRTUAL ANNUAL RETREAT [SEPT. 2-4, 2020]

BLS would like to invite any FIU Law student who is interested in attending any of the Annual Retreat committee events or programs to participate. Each committee meeting has a separate Zoom link, and anyone can join. Here are a few examples of the events law students might particularly enjoy:

  • Sept. 2 1:00 p.m. Inclusion/Mentoring/Fellowship and Membership Committee Joint Meeting (these committees are in charge of the Fellows and Scholars Programs for law students and young lawyers)
  • Sept. 3 12:15 p.m. BLS Judicial Round Table (this is an event featuring primarily business court judges)
  • Sept. 3 6:00 p.m. IMF Networking Event (this is a reception to introduce our BLS Fellows)

*The only event that we request the students not join is the Executive Council Meeting on Friday, September 4, at 9:00 a.m., as this meeting is mandatory for all BLS committee chairs, co-chairs, and liaisons, and it would be unwieldy to have too many people join remotely.
