Bassford Remele to Host Minnesota Judicial Selection Process Seminar


Bassford Remele is pleased to host Minnesota Judicial Selection Process: Challenges Facing Applicants of Color and Strategies for Success sponsored by the Judicial Selection Committee of the Minnesota Association of Black Lawyers.

The CLE is designed to introduce the attendees to the basic judicial application process and the challenges they may face seeking appointment. The CLE is also intended to facilitate discourse relating to various ways in which Black and other applicants of color are likely to be "judged" differently and will provide tips and strategies to enable these applicants to prepare for and hopefully succeed during the judicial selection process.

Do not miss this unique opportunity to hear from individuals with a depth and breadth of knowledge on this timely and important topic!
