Upcoming CLE Programs

Greetings readers of the Ramsey County Law Library Blog.  Today we’d like to call your attention to two upcoming CLE programs you might want to attend. 

On Tuesday March 22, the Minnesota TriBar Association is presenting “Bartenders Wanted | Women Need Not Apply.”  The speaker is the Honorable Ramsey County District Court Judge John Guthman.  Judge Guthman will present on the life and legal case of Clara Anderson, a woman bartender in 1940’s St. Paul.  After the St. Paul City Council enacted an ordinance that prevented women from lucrative bartending positions, she went to court.  Her legal battle lasted three long years.  To find out if she prevailed in her case, consider attending this CLE.  Registration is open until March 20.

Judge Guthman also authored an article about Clara Anderson’s life and legal battle.  This article was published in the Spring 2020 issue of Ramsey County History.

On March 30, the Ramsey County Bar Association and the Law Library are co-sponsoring a CLE to help attorneys increase their research skills with the LexisNexis Digital Library.  The presenter, Kaitlyn Forsyth of LexisNexis, will show users that the library is more than just a book-lending platform.  The digital library can be a new research tool to aid legal research and information organization.  Registration for this program is open now and is free to Ramsey County Bar Association members.
