Cultural Diversity in Law Group: Speed Networking Night @ Grain Exchange Building
Feb 9 @ 6:00 PM – 9:30 PM

The Cultural Diversity in Law Group (CDLG) hosts its second annual Speed Networking Night on Thursday, February 9th, 2023, from 6-9:30 PM. Our event has been generously sponsored by Taylor McCaffrey LLP and will be at Launch Coworking located in the Grain Exchange Building on 500-167 Lombard Ave.

This event is an opportunity for students and lawyers from many different firms and practice areas to connect one-on-one in short, rotating sessions. This allows students to meet and talk to many lawyers throughout the evening without the pressure of “competing” with other students. Although this event is geared towards Indigenous and racialized students, those that support equity in the profession are also welcome to attend.

Tickets will cost $10 + Eventbrite Fees and will cover a fantastic networking opportunity, food catered by the Indigenous-owned restaurant, Feast Cafe & Bistro, a mocktail bar sponsored by Lexis Nexis and serviced by Robson Hall’s very own Cole McClelland and Matthew Rakar and the chance to win amazing prizes.

Tickets are limited and are on sale right now with first dibs to members of CDLG (psst… you can join the group for free here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/DLGRobsonHall).

If there are leftover tickets, the link will be made available to members of the MLSA on January 25, 2023. Sales close at 12 AM on February 6, 2023 or until tickets are sold out.
