New Lawyers Section

The New Lawyers Section provides a forum for addressing issues affecting newer lawyers (under 5 years in practice), sponsors educational programs for those newly in practice, and provides social and networking opportunities for newer attorneys. The Section also offers leadership opportunities and pro bono and community service projects.

The New Lawyers Section typically meets on the 4th Wednesday of each month (excluding December, July and August) at 11:45 a.m. at the Akron Bar Association office.
