Updated Roster of Speakers for the New York Commercial Division Advisory Council Lecture Series

The New York Commercial Division Advisory Council has announced an updated roster of speakers for its June 2024 lecture series (see this blog’s January 23, 2024 post). The topics and speakers will now be as follows:

Date Topic Speakers

The series will be presented virtually on Zoom to summer interns in the Commercial Division, summer associates throughout the United States, and law firms and bar associations worldwide. Each of these series’ four programs will last approximately one hour and will be scheduled between 1:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. ET.

If your firm’s summer associates or attorneys or if your court staff would like to attend, please RSVP via e-mail to ggrissett@kelleydrye.com. The Advisory Council plans to accept RSVPs from law firms or courts, as the case may be, not from individual summer associates, individual attorneys, or individual members of a court staff; it will provide a Zoom link to one person designated by each law firm or court to enable viewing of the programs by summer associates, attorneys, or court staff as a group in each of the firm’s or court’s locations.

Thank you to Bob Haig for this update.
