Call for La Gran Fiesta
IN MARCH, the Latin American Law
Students Association (LALSA) held its annual event, La Gran Fiesta, for
the last time. Next year the event will be renamed and redesigned to reflect
its evolution from a social event to a scholarly conference.
The event was held in a symposium format this year, with talks presented
by four speakers: Judge Juan Sanchez L’81 of the Eastern District
of Pennsylvania, Judge Carlos Lucero of the 10th circuit, Justice Carlos
Moreno of the California Supreme Court, and Nelson Diaz of Blank Rome
in Philadelphia. Speakers focused on “Latinos in the Judiciary.”
Between speeches a cocktail reception provided attendees the opportunity
to meet and speak with the judges, and the speeches were followed by a
salsa band and dancing in the Great Hall.
