The past few months have been busy for YLS members. After welcoming our newly admitted attorneys in October, the YLS joined the GBA for a membership Mix and Mingle in November where we networked with our fellow colleagues. We finished out the year with our annual Greensboro Urban Ministries event. We are looking forward to a great start to 2017, and hope to see you at some of the following events:
Natty Greene’s Party, January 20: Please mark your calendars for our annual post-holiday party at the Loft at Natty Greene’s on January 20, 2017. We will be collecting donations for Hampton Elementary School.
Pro-Bono CLE, January 31: The Greensboro Bar Association and the Young Lawyer’s Section will be sponsoring a free CLE titled “Increasing Pro Bono Participation” at the law offices of Smith Moore Leatherwood LLP on January 31, 2017 at 12 noon. Lunch will be provided and this CLE is open to all GBA members. This CLE will qualify for 1 hour of Professionalism/Ethics credit. Please RSVP to Kristen Redman (email@example.com) by January 24, 2017 to reserve a spot.
