With its rich history, thriving arts scene, and scenic natural beauty, Santa Fe, New Mexico, is the perfect location for this year’s ABA Young Lawyers Division (ABA YLD) Fall Conference. The 2010 Fall Conference, to be held October 14–16, 2010, in “The City Different,” will kick off a new, exciting year for the ABA YLD under the leadership of Division Chair, David B. Wolfe.
Mario Sullivan, the 2010–2011 ABA YLD Conference, Program, and Products Director, encourages all members to attend. All attendees “will have the opportunity to network, learn about the 2010 ABA YLD Public Service Project, attend CLE and professional development programs, have fun, and make lasting connections,” says Sullivan.
The Fall Conference will be the official start of the ABA YLD’s 2010–2011 public service project, Serving Our Seniors. The project is designed to equip young lawyers with the tools needed to educate our senior citizens about the importance of estate planning and protecting themselves from fraud and abuse. The project prepares young lawyers to go into their communities to provide legal representation to low-income seniors in drafting basic estate planning documents.
In addition to learning about the Division’s new service project, attendees will have numerous opportunities to connect and reconnect with their peers from across the country in both formal and informal networking events. A number of excellent continuing legal education programs will be offered. Visit www.abanet.org/yld/fall10 for more information.
First-time Fall Conference attendees are invited to attend the orientation meeting on Thursday evening to receive the maximum benefit from the Conference. All attendees are encouraged to attend the “Welcome Reception” on Thursday evening and the gala on Friday night for some fun and relaxation with other young lawyers. See you in Santa Fe!
