Whitney-thank you! The Dinner is being co-sponsored by the Corporate Counsel Committee, the Cyberspace Committee, the Health Law and Life Sciences
Committee, IP Committee and the White Collar Committee. We are venturing to nearby Koreatown, just west of downtown L.A. and less than 3 miles away, at one
of the most highly regarded Korean barbecue restaurants in town, Park's BBQ, beginning at 7:30 pm and only $40. As you may be aware, metropolitan L.A. is home to
the largest ethnic Korean population outside of Korea and its Koreatown is the largest outside of East Asia.
If you have any suggestions for upcoming CLE programs at the first Business Law Section Annual Meeting, September 11-13 in downtown Chicago, please let me
know. We are always happy to hear from our Committee members, even if you aren't able to attend the ABA meetings in person.
Even if you are unable to travel to L.A., please consider volunteering for our second edition of the Corporate Counsel Toolkit, a handy digital guide for
those who are taking on broader corporate in-house roles. We are excited about the upcoming edition, to be published later this year. If you are interested
in volunteering, please contact the Corporate Counsel Committee co-chairs: Cara Bradley, firstname.lastname@example.org
or myself, email@example.com.
Thank you as always for your support of our Committee.
