Tips from the Bench: How to Effectively Network with the Judiciary
Aug 23 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Ever wonder whether it’s appropriate to communicate with judges through social media or whether you can network with judges when you have a case in their court?  On Wednesday, August 23 at noon at the Belo Mansion, DAYL will delve into a CLE discussion regarding how to effectively and appropriately interact with the judiciary outside of the courtroom.

Networking with the judiciary can prove intimidating for many young lawyers. his CLE will provide insight on various issues related to this topic, including social media interactions with the Court, how to approach networking with judges at political and/or social events, how the relationship can change when your former co-worker/mentor/friend is now on the bench, and how to avoid any unwanted ethical implications.

The CLE will be presented by the Honorable Martin Hoffman of the 68th District Court, the Honorable Amber Givens-Davis of the 282nd District Court, and Julie Pettit of the Pettit Law Firm.  It is free for DAYL members.  Non-members may attend for $10.
