The first APALSA General Body Meeting took place on Monday, September 16, 2013 and was a huge success! The APALSA faculty advisors, Professor Jeannie Suk and Professor Mark Wu, spoke towards the APALSA core values of inclusivity, elevation, engagement, and leadership, emphasizing the importance of building a strong APA community in both the legal industry and society at large. The APALSA board members introduced themselves, mentioned their goals for the year, and announced upcoming events. The attendees networked with the faculty advisors, board members, and other members of APALSA, over a delicious dinner. The event was especially meaningful as it was well attended not only by incoming students but also by upperclassmen, showing the role of community APALSA plays at HLS.
