On Saturday, October 27, AABANY held its 4th annual Upstate Roadshow at Syracuse Law School. Organized by the Student Outreach Committee, co-chairs Irene Tan and Ben Chan brought the downstate contingent that included Amy Ngai, Amy Luo, Thomas Hou, Board member Francis Chin and Executive Director Yang Chen. They were met upstate by Louis Jim, associate at Bond, Schoeneck & King, Tiffany Lee, Assistant US Attorney in the Western District of New York, Mary Traynor, attorney at the Advocacy Group, and Shelly Tsai, attorney at Legal Services of Central New York.
Law students from the law schools at Syracuse, Buffalo and Albany spent the afternoon learning about AABANY, its mission and activities, engaged in an interactive networking workshop and participated in panel discussions about resume writing, interviewing and career paths in the law.
After the panels concluded, panelists and law students headed to Dinosaur Barbecue where they continued to chat and connect over pulled pork sandwiches, mac and cheese, caesar salad and other delectable fare.
Thanks to everyone who attended, and we look forward to strengthening our connections with our friends and members upstate. If you wish to contact the Student Outreach Committee co-chairs, Ben and Irene, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
