As 2022 comes to a close, the YLS is grateful for all of the support received from its members and members of the GBA throughout the past year. The Young Lawyers Section is excited for what we have planned for the remainder of the year and for what we have upcoming in 2023. We are planning even more opportunities for young lawyers to socialize and network, as well as opportunities to support our community and those in need. Keep an eye out for CLEs, speaker luncheons, and community service projects which are being planned for the upcoming year.
At the end of October, the Young Lawyers Section held its Fall Swearing-in Ceremony for the admission of newly licensed attorneys to the state and federal courts. Congratulations to the 14 newly licensed attorneys who took their oaths and were admitted to practice in State and/or Federal Court. The YLS would like to thank Judge Eagles, Judge Albright, and Judge Vincent for presiding over the ceremony, as well as all the State Court and Federal Court clerks who helped to organize the event. We also want to thank all the Young Lawyers Section members and GBA members who were able to join us to support our newly licensed attorneys!
YLS Holiday Party and Donation Event:
Spread some holiday cheer with the YLS while also supporting a good cause! The Young Lawyers Section is hosting its annual holiday party on Thursday, December 15th, 2022, from 5:30 pm to 9:30 pm. The party is being held at Ward Black Law located at 208 W. Wendover Ave. in Greensboro. This will be a great opportunity to socialize with other young attorneys in Greensboro while enjoying food, drinks, and games. The Young Lawyers Section will also be collecting donations of children’s shoes and children’s winter clothes at the event. These donations will be delivered to Backpack Beginnings in Greensboro, where they will be distributed to children in need in our community. Spouses are welcome to join; please RSVP to Robert Trimble at [email protected] by December 8th if you plan to attend. We hope to see you there!
YLS Kickball Team:
