Minority Mentoring Picnic brings students, judges and attorneys together for annual networking event
By Brielle Tucker
On Feb. 4, members of Stetson’s Black Law Students Association attended the 13th Annual Minority Mentoring Picnic in Hialeah, Florida. Ten Stetson students attended this year’s annual networking event, coordinated by the Kozyak Minority Mentoring Foundation.
Upon arrival, law students were greeted with a sticker that read “I Need a Mentor” while judges and attorneys were given stickers that read “I Need a Mentee” in hopes that lasting connections would be made. The picnic was well attended by judges, attorneys and other law students from every law school in Florida. Stetson Law alumnus Brian Tannebaum J.D. ’94 spoke with current Stetson students about life after Stetson and shared his memories from his law school years.
There was an opportunity to hear advice from the Florida Bar on completing the bar application as well as prepping for the bar exam.
Cuisine included barbecue, Caribbean, Mexican, American and vegetarian options. Popcorn, dessert and ice-cream stations were also available. The family-friendly event also featured a “Kids Zone” with rock-climbing, face painting and ring toss games.
