The Young Lawyers Committee
The Young Lawyers Committee, chaired by Matt Butler and Alyssa Ehrlich Howell, is among several committees in GPSolo’s Division Four-Practice Setting. This committee is responsible for encouraging the participation of the Division’s young lawyer members and helping young lawyers advance their careers and expand their knowledge. The leadership of the committee plan, market, select the Young Lawyer Fellows to the Division, and monitor the Young Lawyer Fellows program. The committee’s responsibilities included recruitment and retention of young lawyer members and liaising with the ABA Young Lawyers Division.
The Young Lawyers Committee develops programs of interest to young lawyers. The Committee promoted the following programs to local young lawyers for attendance at the 2012 Spring Meeting in Charleston, SC, May 17–19, 2012, as well as to 220 GPSolo’s Young Lawyers Committees members. The audio recording will be available online soon.
