Soccer Program with Philadelphia Union to Launch New Bar Association Academy, March 29

On March 29, be there for the launch of the brand-new Philadelphia Bar Association Academy by joining Philadelphia Union President Tom Veit, Nick Sakiewicz, CEO and operating partner of the Philadelphia Union and Keystone Sports and Entertainment LLC, and Carl Cherkin, the team's vice president of communications, for an exclusive look at Philadelphia's newest sports franchise and its first-ever major league soccer team.

The free event takes place at The CLE Conference Center on the 10th floor of the Wanamaker Building, Market and Juniper streets, from 12 to 1:30 p.m. Attendees will get a virtual preview of the Union's new 18,500-seat stadium in Delaware County and learn the basics of soccer. A raffle for "Union Gear" will also be held.

The Philadelphia Bar Association Academy, launched this year by Chancellor Scott F. Cooper, is a new civic and cultural education series for members of the Association that aims to better connect members with the city's most vibrant institutions through exclusive, behind-the-scenes access.
