Young Lawyers Section: Connections
During the month of January, the Young Lawyers Section sponsored a 1-hour CLE titled, “Ripped From The Headlines: Ethical Conundrums to Avoid.” The CLE, which was held on Zoom, was an informative presentation by Lawyers Mutual, and provided attendees with 1-hour of free ethics credit toward NC Bar CLE requirements. Thank you to all Young Lawyers Section members and GBA members who were able to join us! We look forward to providing other free CLE opportunities again in the future.
