Happy New Year! The Young Lawyers Section is so excited for the new year and for your participation in 2020. We look forward to celebrating with all of our members!
Lawyers and the Rule of Law Event
On January 16, 2020, the Young Lawyers Section is sponsoring a networking and educational event discussing lawyers and the rule of law. The event will be held from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in Room 207 of Elon Law School.
The rule of law is a hot topic, but it is also part of the fabric of our society. What is it? Why is it so important? Do attorneys have a role to play in promoting the rule of law? Join us for a conversation with Dr. Gerald Postema, Professor Emeritus of philosophy at UNC Chapel Hill, and Kearns Davis, former president of the North Carolina Bar Association. Dr. Postema will elaborate on the value of the rule of law and the role attorneys can play in strengthening it. Mr. Davis will share reflections on the rule of law from his experience as head of the North Carolina Bar Association Delegation to Haiti. Hors d’ouevres and beverages will be provided. Elon Law students and attorneys are encouraged to attend. Please RSVP by January 10 to Patrick Lineberry ([email protected]) and Andrew Steffensen ([email protected]).
The Young Lawyers Section will be hosting its annual kickoff party in January. Please check the Young Lawyers Section Facebook page and keep an eye on your inbox for details!
In January the Young Lawyers Section will host its first lunch event of 2020. The date, time, and place will be announced on the Young Lawyers Section Facebook page and emailed out to all members of the Young Law Section. Please come out and join us!
