05.15.2023 EMPATHY A Necessary Conversation CLE!

You may recall from the news that Miss USA 2019 Cheslie Kryst died by suicide in 2022. Cheslie competed in both Miss SC and Miss NC; ran track at USC; and was a member of both the SC and NC bars. She was incredibly accomplished and appeared to be living “the perfect life” as a television correspondent in NYC which makes her story now being told through her mother April so compelling. April Simpkins is a renowned HR professional and public speaker in her own right. Join the SC Black Lawyers Association, SC Bar Young Lawyers Division, and SC Women Lawyers Association for lunch and an hour of dynamic presentation and conversation with April Simpkins.


The presentation and fireside chat are pending 1 hour worth of SA/MH CLE credit. Tickets are $25.00 including lunch and can be purchased HERE. The event is open to the general public if a ticket is purchased. SPACE IS LIMITED! Get your tickets today!
