Dear Speakers, Guests, and Friends,
On behalf of the Harvard Asian Pacific American Law Students Association (APALSA), we cordially invite you to the 21st Annual National Law and Policy Conference, which will take place on February 7, 2015 on the Harvard Law School campus. After a successful 20th conference that gathered over 250 legal professionals, academics, activists, and students last year, we expect to host an even greater number of participants this year for an exciting day of discussion, collaboration, and friendship.
This year’s conference, entitled Defining Diversity, will explore the question of what “diversity” means within the APA community and how APAs contribute to the “diversity” of their broader communities and the workplace. Three keynote speeches, four thematically organized panels, and a negotiation workshop will feature distinguished speakers from various industries and backgrounds and generate a constructive discussion on the unique issues that affect APA lawyers today.
In addition, we hope that the Conference will continue to be a meaningful opportunity for all to network and meet with other colleagues interested in APA issues through the social events and career fair that will take place during the Conference.
Finally, we will once again take the occasion to recognize outstanding leaders and organizations that have greatly contributed to the APA community over the past years. After inaugurating the APALSA Distinguished Alumni Award last year, we are proud to uphold this new tradition and will announce the second Award recipient during the evening banquet.
More details on the conference keynotes and sessions will become available throughout the year, but in the meantime, please reach us for any inquiry or concern. We sincerely hope that you will be able to join us for the conference!
