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 San Antonio, Texas for the 9th Annual GPSolo National Solo & Small Firm Conference. We will be meeting in person at the conference on Friday, October 24, 2014 from 4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. at the La Condesa, Mezzanine Level of Hilton Palacio del Rio Hotel.

Immediately following the committee meeting, from 6:00 p.m.- 8:00 p.m. in the Pavilion (across the street), GPSolo is hosting a Welcome Reception with GPSolo leaders, attorneys, and judges. Free!

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.
