The Northeastern Judicial Circuit Bar Association, located primarily in Gainesville, Georgia, hosts multiple Law Day events. The Bar Association membership hosts an annual favorite Bowling Tournament which will occur this year on Thursday evening, May 1, celebrating very friendly and very competitive rivalries between local firms and government agencies all vying for the coveted bragging rights for the next 365 days. The Northeastern Bar Association Law Day Luncheon is Friday May 2, in which our speaker will be Elizabeth Poythress, from the Georgia League of Women Voters. This is a formal luncheon where awards are given to leaders in our community, to both lawyers and non-lawyers, who personify professionalism and advocacy for fellow citizens.
The local bar association facilitates local youth and school involvement by hosting courthouse tours for school classes from local elementary, middle, and high schools. Every year tours are given, along with copies of the U.S. Constitution and other legal items, to over 400 students. Our goal in the upcoming year is to involve our active senior community in Hall County in our legal community as advocates for professionalism and justice.
