Students attend annual American Bar Association conference in San Francisco

Rising 2L Kallie Crawford and rising 3L Charlie Possino attended the annual American Bar Association (ABA) conference in San Francisco, California from August 8th through the 10th. Crawford is an ABA representative and Possino is the law school's Student Bar Association (SBA) president.

"I just want to thank Administration and everyone that helped to coordinate and make this trip possible. I believe this is an opportunity not only for the school but for the students in attendance. It should be continued throughout Duquesne's years," said Crawford.

Crawford and Possino participated in different events including several cutting-edge continuing legal education (CLE) programs such as: "CLE in the City: Keeping Order in the New Public Square of Social Media: Freedom of Content vs. Social Responsibility", where a panel talked about how social media platforms have increased connections and conversations among friends, families, and professions.

"Attending the ABA annual conference was an amazing experience. Having the opportunity to not only represent Duquesne Law but to network was priceless. Meeting other law students from their respective law schools was a great way to understand how law schools across the country are handling hot topic issues like enrollment, resources, and bar passage rate," said Crawford.

Both students were also able to partake in the Military Lawyers Committee Dining Out, which represents the most formal aspects of military social life.
