FREE 1.0 CLE — March 30, Noon

Just a reminder that we still have room if you wish to attend the one hour free CLE on Wednesday, March 30th at Noon in the Jury Assembly Room, 3rd Floor, Williamsburg Courthouse.

Although it’s too late for us to order you lunch, we can get you a copy of the materials and course registration if you tell Gordon Klugh that you’re coming. The CLE is pre-approved for 1.0 hours of (non-ethics) credit.

Hands Together Historic Triangle

handtogether

We have an upcoming community volunteer opportunity for those attorneys who are interested, in the form of the Hands Together Historic Triangle event on March 7, 2016. It is a one-day resource fair for the homeless and precariously housed in our community.  There will be a wide variety of organizations there providing information about social services, mental and physical health, food distribution, housing, as well as other necessities. This year it will be at the Quarterpath Recreation Center from 10am – 4 pm.

James City County Social Services is requesting attorneys to attend to cater to legal needs and questions.  The WBA will have a booth at this event needing attorneys to man each shift.  The shifts will be as follows:

*Two attorneys from 10:00AM to 11:30 AM

*Two attorneys from 11:30AM to 1:00 PM

*Two attorneys from 1:00 PM to 3:00PM

This is a great opportunity both to help the community and build new relationships/clientele.

Please contact our board member Nate Green if you are interested in this volunteer opportunity, and tell him which shift you would prefer.
