YLD: Legal Link Seeking Volunteer Speakers

By Sheila Spence

Legal LINK is a committee of the Young Lawyers Division. Legal LINK stands for Leadership, Information, Networking, and Knowledge. This program is designed to increase interest in legal careers among high school students who are underrepresented in the legal profession. Legal LINK consists of one-hour sessions focused on each of the LINK building blocks and includes a field trip to a local law school or courthouse. We are looking for speakers for our upcoming sessions at Southern High School and Person High School.

We are currently planning our sessions on Leadership, Information, Networking, and Knowledge and we would like to invite you to participate if you are available.  Unless otherwise noted, all sessions are held on Fridays from noon to 1 p.m.

The networking and knowledge session will be held at North Carolina Central University School of Law on April 5, 2019 from 10:30 to noon.

The information session will be held at Person High School and is scheduled for May 10, 2019.
