Dear Australian Lawyer,The International Law Section of the Law Council of Australia has formed a NY Chapter for Australian lawyers. (See attached excerpt from the International Law Section’s March 2012 Newsletter.) The general objectives of the NY Chapter are to apprise the Law Council of practice issues of concern to Australian lawyers working in the U.S., to assist in the development and implementation of the Law Council’s international strategy, to provide the Law Council with access to local expertise on U.S. legal issues, and to co-ordinate Law Council delegations to the U.S.
I am writing to invite you to join the Law Council’s International Law Section and become involved in the NY Chapter. Membership in the Section and NY Chapter is free through June 30, 2012, and very reasonably priced at AU$65.00 a year thereafter. If you are interested, please complete the attached membership application form, and return it to me or directly to the Law Council at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I would also like to invite you to join the NY Chapter’s executive committee, which will meet for the first time on Wednesday, April 18th at 6:30 p.m. at the offices of McLaughlin & Stern LLP, 260 Madison Avenue (between 38th and 39th Streets). Beyond fulfilling the general objectives established by the Law Council, we have the opportunity to shape our Chapter into an organization that will fulfill whatever professional, educational, business development and social interests we would like to pursue together.
If you would like to attend the executive committee meeting on April 18th, please RSVP by reply e-mail. If you can’t attend, but have suggestions for the executive committee’s agenda, please e-mail or call me.
With best regards,
Susan M. Davies
