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.
