Topic: District Court Judge - Perspectives from the Bench

Welcome back, Rochester MPA members! I trust you all had a wonderful summer break. For our September meeting, we have the honor of having Judge King come speak to us about her experience as a district court judge. This is one you don't want to miss! Judge King will provide a perspective from the bench about how paralegals can most effectively assist in the representation of clients appearing before the district court. This will be an informal presentation. Questions are encouraged.

Note: We will be in Meeting Room A, located on the first floor. Library staff can direct you. (Meeting Room B on the 2nd floor was not available).
