On Saturday, November 12, St John’s APALSA together with AABANY’s Student Outreach Committee presented Networking 101, an interactive networking workshop designed to teach law students the ins and outs and do’s and don’ts of networking by getting students on their feet and engaging in networking exercises. Chris Chan, past AABANY president, led the workshop, attended by students from St. John’s, CUNY, Hofstra and Touro.  Student Outreach Committee Co-Chairs Ben Chan and Liza Sohn attended, along with AABANY members Stephen Kim and Lucian Chen and Executive Director Yang Chen. Enjoy the slideshow with photos taken by Liza and Yang.  If you are interested in bringing workshop to your school or organization, contact us at [email protected].


Next in our series of “Get Connected @ AABANY” videos is Connie Yik Kong, first year associate at Grimaldi & Yeung who graduated last year from Boston University School of Law and got her current position through AABANY. She works with AABANY Solo and Small Firm Committee Co-Chair Pauline Yeung-Ha, name partner at Grimaldi & Yeung and recently recognized as Super Lawyer Rising Star and Best Lawyer 2012.

To quote Connie: “Even though it’s an awkward experience sometimes, networking is worth it because without networking and getting to know [AABANY] I would never find out about this job, and I’m really grateful and want to give back to the legal community.”
