Young Lawyers Network
On the evening of October 7, the Section invited attorneys and law students interested in real property or trusts and estates law to the lobby of the ABA building for a networking reception. Members and guests gathered on the south side of the lobby overlooking the Chicago River and enjoyed wine and cheese while networking with dozens of colleagues. Nearly half the people in attendance were current ABA members, while the others had the opportunity to learn more about the ABA and the Section. RPTE leadership in Chicago showed strong support for the event, and discussed the benefits of being a RPTE member with attendees. This successful event was sponsored by Section member Ray Prather's firm, Prather Ebner LLP.
A similar networking event will be held in Atlanta in 2011. If you would like to volunteer to help organize or sponsor this event, please contact Jim Spratt at email@example.com. Contact Membership Committee Co-Chairs Hugh Drake ( Hdrake@bhslaw.com ) or Chris Hanback ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) for more information on these local events.
