Our Fall events are in full swing. If you missed our first Barrister’s After Hours last week, be sure to check out next month’s event at Odd Fellows Hall on October 13th. Various legal aid organizations will be featured at the event and representatives will be on hand to discuss how you can become involved. These organizations offer a variety of opportunities ranging from ongoing representation to one time clinics. Aside from altruism, volunteering is a great opportunity to gain experience outside the scope of your practice area. If you’re already an active pro bono volunteer or have a unique story about a volunteer experience, consider writing a blog post for the DBA YLD website. We will feature member posts next month in recognition of National Pro Bono Week. Blog entries should be no longer than 500 words and may be submitted to Heather Folker by Friday, Oct. 21.
Chair, DBA YLD
