24 June, 2011, Friday after work. Swedish Mid-Summer Festival at the Battery (Wagner Park).
On the Friday closest to the actual summer solstice, Swedes celebrate Midsummer's Eve, rejoicing in the light of the sun and arrival of summer. This major holiday is usually celebrated in the heart of nature, as Swedes head out to the countryside to enjoy food, drink, games, dancing and general revelry.

27th June, 2011, Monday, at 6 o'clock P.M. Public forum: Civil Legal Services in Europe - What Can the U.S. Learn? N.Y. County Lawyers Assn., 14 Vesey Str. (betw. B'way & Church Str.)http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif.
Panel (in formation): Moderator David Udell, Executive Director, National Center for Access to Justice, Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law; Paris R. Baldacci, clinical professor of law and director, Housing Rights Clinic, Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law; Lynn M. Kelly, executive director, City Bar Justice Center; Hon. Fern Fisher, Deputy Chief Administrative Judge for New York City Courts; Emmanuel Masson, president, Lille (France) bar association; and Bertrand Debosque, former president, Lille (France) Bar Association.
Unlike in Europe, the United States has no civil Gideon, no constitutional guarantee of representation for poor people facing potentially serious consequences from civil litigation. This forum will feature a discussion of the civil legal service systems European countries have developed, including the tensions within those systems about funding and the allocation of services among potential litigants, particularly in light of recent budget cuts. Panelists will focus on strategies for expanding access to civil legal services in New York and around the United States in a difficult economic climate.
