3rd Annual Ethnic Bar Reception

On behalf of the Filipino American Bar Association (FABA) and John Marshall Law School, I'd like to invite you to the 3rd Annual Ethnic Bar Reception on Thursday, September 14, 2005 from 5:00-7:00p.m. at the John Marshall Law School.

The theme for this year's event is "The Changing Face of the Law: The Momentum Builds". The primary purpose of this event is to facilitate continued cooperation among the various bar organizations and to encourage joint events between bar organizations.

At the reception, there will be a symbolic swearing-in of the presidents of participating organizations. Chief Judge Charles Kocoras has also agreed to give the welcoming remarks. Chief Judge Timothy Evans has agreed to administer the oath. U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitgerald has agreed to give a keynote address. Dean Patricia Mell will then give the closing remarks.

Attached is a list of organizations who have participated in the past. I've updated the presidents where I was able. I’ve noted those organizations/presidents who have indicated they will be participating. If your organization intends on participating, please respond ASAP. Your prompt response will ensure that your organization and the new president will be placed on the program and that a seat for the swearing will be reserved for the president or a representative.
