    The Children In Prison Project is celebrating it's 2nd Anniversary with a reception and fundraiser. Join them and special guests Vice President Walter Mondale and radio personality Garrison Keillor!

    Help them celebrate the accomplishments of the past two years and build support to return to Mexico to continue their work in Mexico City. They have also been invited to start projects in Chihuahua, and Oaxaca, Mexico. These are very important projects, as the authorities have given them their support but the situation in the juvenile prisons is dire. These are some of the worst juvenile prisons project members have experienced anywhere in Latin America. But without your support, the project cannot continue its important work.

    Come celebrate!

    The Magna Carta Regional Summit

     

    Date: Friday, June 19, 2015 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM
    Venue: Bakken Museum  Minneapolis, MN United States   Get Directions
    Total Price: $25.00


    Deadline to Register: June 17, 2015

    The American Bar Association, in conjunction with affiliated state and county bar associations, is pleased to celebrate the 800th Anniversary of the sealing of the Magna Carta at the ABA Magna Carta Regional Summit in Minneapolis, Minnesota.


    From its 13th Century roots in the English meadow of Runnymede, the Magna Carta has transcended its original time and place to become one of the world’s most recognized and enduring symbols of liberty under law.  The fundamental concepts of liberty that had their beginnings in Magna Carta were transplanted to the American colonies where they were accepted, refined, and embedded in the instruments of government as well as the thinking of the American people.  Magna Carta provided the basis for the idea of a higher law, one that could not be altered either by executive mandate or legislative acts. This concept, embraced by the leaders of the American Revolution, is embedded in the Supremacy Clause of the United States Constitution.  Throughout American history, the rights associated with Magna Carta have been regarded as among the most important guarantees of freedom and fairness. 


    In honor of the 800th Anniversary of the Magna Carta, the ABA Magna Carta Regional Summit will feature preeminent speakers who will present a series of continuing legal education programs on the significance and enduring legacy of the Great Charter.  The speakers are from the following bar associations:

    • American Bar Association;
    • Minnesota State Bar Association;
    • Hennepin County Bar Association;
    • Minnesota Hispanic Bar Association;
    • Minnesota Asian Pacific American Bar Association;
    • Minnesota Association of Black Lawyers;
    • State Bar of Wisconsin;
    • Massachusetts Bar Association;
    • Utah State Bar Association; and
    • Federal Bar Association.

    The ABA Magna Carta Regional Summit will take place on Friday, June 19, 2015 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Bakken Museum, which is located at 3537 Zenith Avenue South in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  The Bakken Museum is located on the shores of Lake Calhoun, and is the world’s only library and museum devoted to medical electricity.  The Museum was founded by Earl E. Bakken, inventor of the first battery-operated external pacemaker and founder of Medtronic, Inc.  The Museum has many unique scientific exhibits and gardens.  A tour of the Museum will be included as part of the registration.


    The ABA Magna Carta Regional Summit is chaired by Donika Pentcheva.  Donika is a Patent Attorney at Westman, Champlin & Koehler, P.A. in Minneapolis.  She is the District Representative of the State of Minnesota and the State of Wisconsin to the American Bar Association.  She was recently appointed to serve as Assistant Council Coordinator to the ABA Young Lawyers Division Council, which is the governing body of the largest lawyer organization in the U.S. with over 135,000 members and 300 affiliated groups.  In that role, she is responsible for assisting the Division Chair and Administrative Director in training and supporting ABA district representatives and in coordinating the Division’s Council meetings.

    CLE: Representing Culturally Diverse Clients: Practical View & Views from the Bench

     
    2.0 (Elimination of Bias) CLE credits applied for this program.


    Featuring: Hon. Peter M. Reyes, Minnesota Court of Appeals and Esteban A. Rivera, Rivera Law Firm LLC


    Representing culturally diverse clients raises unique challenges for practitioners in many areas of the law such as criminal, family, immigration, and employment law.  Being aware and adjusting for these challenges can help you and your client in front of the bench. 

    In this program, we will seek to answer the following questions:

    • What kind of preparation is needed prior to represent a culturally diverse client?
    • What are the key elements that could be overlooked representing culturally diverse clients?
    • What is expected from the bench when representing a culturally diverse client?
    • What elements of a culturally diverse client should be brought to the attention to bench?

     Our program will include a panel discussion featuring a Judge from the MN Court of Appeals who hears appeals from all the counties in MN, former practitioner in-house and attorney at local law firms, former president of the Hispanic National Bar Association, and former president of the Minnesota Hispanic Bar Association; and an attorney who represents mostly culturally diverse clients and currently serves as the president of the Minnesota Hispanic Bar Association.


    When: Monday, June 22
    2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
    Where: HCBA Office
    600 Nicollet Mall
    Suite 390

    "Last Plane Out of Saigon" reception and book signing event


    Come meet co-author Richard Pena and hear about his extraordinary collaboration with ABF Research Professor John Hagan, and the surprising connection to the American Bar Foundation.

    In 1972, sixty-one days after the Paris Peace Accords were signed specifying that American troops must withdraw from Vietnam - one day beyond the terms of agreement - Rihard Pena was among the final handful of Americans to leave the country. "Last Plane Out of Saigon" capures the personal journey of Pena, a draftee working in the operating room of Vietnam's larger military hopsital in the final year of the Vietnam War.


    Award-winning sociologist and ABF Research Professor John Hagan, Pena's contemporary and recognized scholar of the period, provides sobering historical and politcal context.

    This event is free, but requires registration.  To register please contact The Fellows office at fellows@abfn.org or (800) 292-5065.
