Calling all PLSI Alumni from the Classes of 1972, 1982, 1992, & 2002

Good morning!  I am Heidi Macdonald from the American Indian Law Center.  I am working with our beloved Heidi Nesbitt on a Four-Year Reunion Dinner for the PLSI Classes of 1972, 1982, 1992, and 2002.  Can you believe how quickly the time has passed since you first began your legal education with PLSI?  We are very excited to offer such a momentous occasion.  We hope you can join us for your PLSI class reunion dinner!  The PLSI Four-Year Reunion Dinner will be the night before the Federal Bar Association’s 37th Annual Indian Law Conference on April 18, 2012 at 7 p.m. at Gabriel’s Restaurant.  This PLSI class reunion dinner will give you the chance to catch up with old friends and meet new ones! 

The American Indian Law Center is also pleased to announce the creation of the “PLSI Alumni Scholarship Fund.”  During the PLSI Reunion Dinner this year, the alumni of each of the four classes will have the opportunity to contribute to the PLSI Alumni Scholarship Fund.  Any contributions for the PLSI Alumni Scholarship Fund will ensure future generations of Native students are able to experience PLSI as we did.  As alumni, we know the importance PLSI has played in our lives and the foundation it has created for our legal careers.  During PLSI, we have accomplished our dreams, met some of our best friends, and learned where passion and perseverance can take us.  If you are a member of one of the PLSI classes (1972, 1982, 1992, and 2002) and have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. My email address is or (505) 277-5462. Thank you for your continued support!”
