NORDIC LAW CLUB OF CHICAGO SPRING SMORGASBORD (Also known as the Annual Codfish Dinner)

         Please join the Nordic Law Club of Chicago, as we celebrate springtime with our annual Smorgasbord.  The dinner will include such Scandinavian delights as: Swedish meatballs, herring hors d’oeuvres, rice pudding with lingonberries and, of course, tasty codfish.  Beer and wine and an Aquavit toast will be provided free of charge.

 

Judge Larsen, a true Scandinavian judge, will address “New Developments in Chancery”, including mediation of e-discovery disputes.  She will also lighten the discussion with a few “fun” facts about law in Scandinavia.

 

Please send in your reservations and payment today by printing of the downloadable announcement per the instructions in the attachment.  For questions, email Treasurer David G. Clark at n9rx@sbcglobal.net.  Don’t forget to bring your friends and associates (including non-Scandinavians) to this wonderful event of great food and fellowship.  The restaurant is close to the railroad stations.  There is parking below the restaurant at the OSW garage at 1 S. Lower Wacker Drive, and Wells Street has two surface parking structures.

1147 W. Ohio is one block north of Grand Ave. and one block east of Racine Ave. It is easily

accessible by public transportation (Blue Line to Chicago Avenue stop or #56 Milwaukee bus to Ogden

Ave., then three block walk south on Ogden and Racine to Ohio; or #65 Grand bus to Grand and May

Sts., then one block walk north on May to Ohio). For the CTA-averse, the best bets for on-street parking

are May St. between Ohio and Ogden Aves. and Hubbard Street (one block south of Grand). In case of

foul weather, the fallback location is host Arne Rode’s apartment 505 at 1147 W. Ohio Street.
