Welcome to the Young Lawyers Section of the MSBA!
One of our initiatives for the year will focus on helping young lawyers who may be unemployed or under-employed gain practical legal experience. As such, on September 20, 2012 we had our first annual pro bono opportunities fair: The Pro Bono Connection. The fair was co-sponsored by The Pro Bono Resource Center, University of Maryland School of Law, and University of Baltimore School of Law. It was a great success and I would like to thank our Pro Bono Committee on the first of what will be many successful programs this bar year.
I want to encourage everyone to get involved in the many events hosted by our section. I, personally, have found the practice of law infinitely more rewarding because of my participation in the bar association and particularly the young lawyers section. Because we are not a substantive section, we have a range of programs and activities from public service to pro bono to educational to family events. These events and programs provide a wonderful opportunity to get to know your fellow lawyers, learn more about the legal profession and build relationships that will last throughout your legal career. I hope you will consider joining us at our next event.
