Alia Abdi with Judge Wilhelmina Wright

Zimmerman Reed Associate Moderates FBA Newer Lawyers’ Luncheon with Judge Wright

The Honorable Judge Wilhelmina Wright welcomed the Minnesota Chapter of the Federal Bar Association’s Newer Lawyers Committee into her courtroom on October 29, 2019 for an interview-style luncheon. The interview was conducted by Alia Abdi, an associate at Zimmerman Reed, and co-chair of the FBA Newer Lawyers Committee.

The goal of this event was to continue the Committee’s tradition of hosting a series of monthly luncheons with Minnesota’s federal bench. At Judge Wright’s request, an interview-style format was utilized for this particular luncheon and Alia Abdi was asked by Judge Wright to conduct the interview.

Throughout the event, Judge Wright shared lessons and advice on the challenges, expectations, and opportunities the newer lawyers may experience during their careers in federal practice. This luncheon was an excellent opportunity for newer lawyers to gather in Judge Wright’s courtroom and get to know her in an informal setting.
