An April 15 MSBA Bar Bulletin article titled “Lawyers Lend Ears for CLREP” covers a fundraising event hosted by the Citizenship Law-Related Education Program (CLREP) and Baltimore-based Stoop Storytelling Series. Intended to raise awareness of CLREP and its mission to promote law-related education in Maryland schools, the event included a silent auction and featured personal stories of “legal luminaries,” including Ava Lias-Booker, managing partner of McGuireWoods’ Baltimore office. The article includes a photo of Ava and mentions she told the story of her experience as a first-year law student presenting oral arguments while wearing a $40 suit in a moot court competition.
