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.
Join DAYL on Thursday, August 24 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. for our August Social sponsored by and held at PayneMitchell Law Group. Drinks and appetizers will be provided. In lieu of an entry fee, we will be collecting donations for Mosaic Family Services, a non-profit organization offering a safe haven for survivors of human rights abuses, including human trafficking and domestic violence. Many of these survivors are young children. Let’s help them start the school year off on the right foot! We will be accepting cash donations (for school uniforms and other needs) as well as backpacks and school supplies.
PayneMitchell is located at Parkside Tower, 3500 Maple Avenue, Suite 1250, which is on the 12th floor of the Heritage Auctions building across the street from Reverchon Park. Parking is free and can be accessed Visitor/Tenant Parking entrance on Maple Avenue.
