Last week, Thompson Coburn partners Michael Parks and Diona Rogers sat on panels for the 2023 Midwest BLSA 55th Annual Regional convention—Law & Policy Symposium and Corporate Law panels; respectively. The convention, themed "Bet on Black," brought together law students, pre-law students and alumni to network, inspire and learn. The Firm is an annual sponsor of the convention.
Michael said, "I really enjoyed it and I think the symposium went well. It was good synergy among the participants."
Diona said, “The MWBLSA convention really provides a fantastic opportunity for Thompson Coburn to connect with diverse law students during the early stages of their careers. Our presence and participation in the convention was impactful and valued. The students were excited to hear from us and we were excited to tell them all about Thompson Coburn!”
