Advance Your Career -> Professional Advantages

Attending one Section meeting as a law student is the reason that I have my career. Show up. Observe the intangibles because you will be among the very best of the profession. Attend substantive meetings and programs of interest to help narrow your interests. When opportunities present themselves, have meaningful conversations. The personal and professional advantages will be unmatched — I guarantee it." Christina Michelle Houston, DLA Piper

M&A Resources -> Practice-Specific Resources

“The education I have obtained from my involvement in the BLS’s M&A Committee has been incomparable to anything else available. We have very interactive discussions that provide the most intense, but enjoyable and rewarding, education. Many sources of CLE exist, but none of these compare with meeting with great colleagues from all over the world, participating in Committee discussions about various M&A issues, and discussing those issues more informally at social events”. Nathaniel Doliner, Shareholder, Carlton Fields, Tampa, FL; Former Chair, Business Law Section
