The Young Lawyers Section is excited to kick off the 2019-2020 year! We have several events planned, and we are excited about incorporating new activities into our schedule of events.
Our first charitable event this year will be a partnership with Backpack Beginnings to fill backpacks as part of the Comfort Backpack Program. These backpacks will offer care, comfort, and basic necessities, including blankets, stuffed animals, books, hygiene products, school supplies, and more. The backpacks will be provided to abused/neglected, homeless, foster, and refugee children in Guilford County. This is always a very fun and rewarding event. We will be meeting on Thursday, September 12 at 3:30 pm at Backpack Beginnings, 3707-D Alliance Drive, Greensboro, NC 27407. To RSVP for this event, please email me at [email protected].
Networking and Happy Hour
Immediately following the Backpack Beginnings event, we will convene at Fat Dog’s Grille and Pub. If you can’t attend the Backpack Beginnings event, please plan to meet us at Fat Dog’s from 5:45-8:00 pm. We will provide the drinks and some light snacks.
YLS is planning on holding a swearing-in ceremony for newly licensed attorneys in early October. The date of the swearing-in ceremony will be announced once it is confirmed. As always, we encourage all members of the GBA to join us and support our newly licensed attorneys. If you are a newly licensed attorney or you know a newly licensed attorney who would like to participate, please e-mail Kristen Redman at [email protected] to receive the application materials. The application materials should be available by mid-September.
