LeGal hosts Fireside Chat with Judge Ariel Chesler at Brooklyn Law School
Judge Ariel Chesler sat down on Tuesday with members of the LGBT Bar Association of New York (LeGal) for a “Fireside Chat” with Vice President Sarah Filcher at the Brooklyn Law School, where he discussed his life, his court and how the two come together.
The event was co-hosted by the Brooklyn Law School OUTLaws and the Network of Bar Leaders.
“We’re really excited for this because this is our first event for the year,” said Yasemin Akturk, chair of the BLS OUTLaws. “We’re happy to be working with the LGBT Bar Association of New York. We’ve attended a lot of their events in the past and participated in Mentor-palooza, where I got my mentor last year, so we like working with them as much as possible. We’re excited that you are all here for the Fireside Chat, even absent a real fire.”
Meredith Miller, who is both the president of the Network of Bar Leaders and a member of LeGal, made introductions.
