MDLA TTS

I am pleased to announce that the 2019 MDLA Trial Techniques Seminar will be held in Duluth on August 15-17! The speakers at this seminar are sure to attract trial lawyers from across the state. Additionally, the social events associated with the meeting will also be top notch, including a welcome reception on Thursday evening, the presentation of the annual MDLA Awards during lunch on Friday, and a family-friendly party on Friday evening. We hope you will take advantage of this unique opportunity to interact with our faculty, members, and their friends and family members by sponsoring the event.

– Steve Sitek, MDLA President

Community Service Project:  School Supply Drive

For the first time ever, MDLA will host a community service project at TTS, collecting school supplies (and cash donations to purchase school supplies) for in-need Minnesota students and classrooms.  Supplies most needed are crayons, notebooks, glue sticks, pencils, markers, and pens.  Start collecting at your firm now!  In the spirit of friendly competition, a prize will be awarded to those who collect the most supplies!  Please contact Elizabeth Brotten (ebrotten@foleymansfield.com) or Molly de la Vega (molly.delavega@lindjensen.com) with questions.
