    This interactive workshop will help you embrace a creative mindset for legal practice while having a little fun along the way. Adam is the founder of At Philosophy, a company dedicated to driving creativity and innovation in the legal industry. Through creativity workshops, creativity coaching, and creative consulting, Adam is empowering attorneys to approach their practice from new vantage points. Over the years, legal practice has remained largely unchanged. This presents an incredible opportunity for attorneys to drive additional value for their clients, their teams, and themselves by applying creative problem-solving strategies to their practice. 

    Prior to founding At Philosophy, Adam was a corporate attorney at Covington & Burling LLP and Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP. He graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Law where he received the Wharton Certificate of Management. During this time, he also conducted research at The Wharton School on the intersectionality of innovation and law. He received his undergraduate degree in philosophy from Washington University in St. Louis. Adam currently serves as the president of AEF and as a D.C. advisory board member to the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship.

     A Zoom link and dial-in information will be sent to individuals who have RSVP’d before this event. If you have any questions, please contact Lloyd Liu or James Billings Kang at education@apaba-dc.org.

    Max capacity: 15 members.

    Hot off the press! The winner of the 2020 National Book Award for Fiction is Interior Chinatown by Charles Yu, who is known for his writing in the HBO series, Westworld.  Interior Chinatown is a satirical novel written in the form of a screenplay, exposing the typecasting and racism in Hollywood by following an Asian film actor who is stuck in the background roles of "Generic Asian Man" or "Delivery Guy" with very few lines, while yearning to one day become the "Kung Fu Guy."  

    Is there a better way to spend this holiday season than reading with a cup of hot chocolate? Looking forward to seeing you at the Book Club discussion.
