Young Lawyers Section: Connections
During the month of February, the Young Lawyers Section sponsored a Speaker Luncheon featuring Janet Ward Black as the keynote speaker. The luncheon, which was held at Undercurrent Restaurant in Downtown Greensboro, had a great turnout of both GBA and YLS members, who received advice from a prominent local attorney on furthering their careers and making the most of the legal profession. Thank you to Janet Ward Black for such informative presentation and thank you to all Young Lawyers Section members and GBA members who were able to join us!
The Young Lawyers Section also held an in-person service opportunity in February at BackPack Beginnings in Greensboro. The GBA and YLS volunteers who participated packed weekend food bags which were distributed to children in need at preschools and elementary schools in our community. The YLS collected grocery bags and canned goods leading up to the event. Thank you to all of the GBA and YLS members who donated and/or participated in this service opportunity!
