Message From the Co-Chairs

Welcome to the GPSolo Division's Young Lawyers Committee!

Following last year's success, we are looking forward to another great year. Please join us in Boston, MA for the ABA Annual Meeting. We will be meeting in person at that conference on Friday, August 8 at 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm to define our key ideas and discuss programs for the year. Please join us.

The Young Lawyers Committee provides a perfect opportunity to participate in events, access information of interest to young lawyers, and meet other members of the Division.

We look forward to working with you all over the next few months.
