Flaherty & Hood associate attorney Alissa Harrington edited the January/February 2020 issue of the Hennepin Lawyer. The issue focuses on practicing in emerging areas of the law, including data breach litigation, ethical traps of artificial intelligence and machine learning, hemp farming, and the recent push to change names of places to reflect our changing understanding of our shared history. Harrington also wrote the introductory article, exploring the challenges and benefits of working in an ever-changing world where the law often lags.
Harrington began volunteering on the Hennepin Lawyer committee in 2018. She edited the March/April 2019 issue, focusing on issues of money and the law. Harrington also wrote about her experiences becoming a new lawyer and advocating for the establishment of a Veterans Suicide Awareness Day in the wake of her brother’s death by suicide at the Minneapolis VA.
The Hennepin Lawyer is the official publication of the Hennepin County Bar Association, the largest district bar in the state. Harrington continues to serve on the committee, helping to shape the issues and articles.
