It is the rare individual who starts law school intending to become an employee benefits attorney.  A challenge for the employee benefits practice is to raise awareness about the practice in general.  This session will look at increasing attorney diversity and employment opportunities in the area of employee benefits and why that is so important.  Val Jensen, Executive Director of Twin Cities Diversity in Practice, will start the discussion focusing on outreach to diverse groups and a panel with representatives from Minnesota‚Äôs three law schools will discuss opportunities to both connect with law students and to build a pipeline of potential employee benefit attorneys, especially diverse candidates.  Moderators will then open the session for audience questions and further discussion among the panelists.

The Section will also hold their annual meeting and elect new officers for 2017-18 during the first 10-15 minutes of the meeting.

Lunch and registration will begin at 11:45 a.m. The program will begin at approximately 12:00 p.m.
