Roundtable Lunch: Janet M. Dunlap March 19, 12:30-2 PM in the Barat House
Dear BLS Members,
I’d like to invite you to our next Roundtable Lunch, the first this semester. Our guest speaker is Janet Dunlap, and a short bio is at the end of this message. The lunch is on March 19, 12:30-2 PM in the Barat House (next to Stuart with the red door).
To attend, please RSVP with Jennifer Yeung <firstname.lastname@example.org>, 30 persons max, so please RSVP as soon as practicable.
The Roundtable Lunch is program created by Dean Garvey and hosted through BLS. Students at BC Law meet with a guest speaker, who has often had unconventional careers with her/his law degree from BC, usually at the intersection of business and law. The lunch is free and catered, it is business casual dress, and often hosted by the Dean.
There is no qualification, you do not need to be a BLS member or to receive this email to RSVP (please tell your friends). The lunch starts with food, then a talk by the speaker, followed by discussion and Q&A (so bring your questions).
There is no better time to attend considering the state of our economy, whereby challenges/uncertainties can create opportunities in areas you’ve yet to explore.
We hope to see you there.
