The Recent Call Committee presents – Court and Cocktails

Date: Friday, April 29, 2022

Recent Calls: once upon a time, lawyers met and learned from each other not through Zoom calls that were hastily hung up on. They could not hide their faces in the courtroom with the click of a button. Believe it or not, people used to talk face to face with judges, then shared pieces of advice and their most outrageous trial stories over a drink (or two). Recent calls who primarily began their practice during the Zoom era may feel left out, so to make up for all the lost time and good stories, join the CLA Recent Call Committee for our social event on Friday, April 29, 2022!

Open to all current CLA members call from 2016 to 2022.
