The Young Lawyers Section is excited to kick off the 2018-2019 year! We have several events planned and we are looking to incorporate 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 event is always one that is fun and rewarding. We will be meeting on Thursday, September 6 at 4:30 p.m. at 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, plan to meet us at Fat Dog’s from 6:00-8:00pm. We will provide the drinks and some light snacks.
Swearing In Ceremony
YLS is working on tailoring the Swearing in ceremony to meet the needs of more young lawyers in Greensboro. Look for some exciting new changes! We plan to hold the event in early October and will announce the date as 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, please e-mail Nicole Scallon at [email protected] to receive the application materials. These should be available by August 31, 2018.
