Attention New Attorneys! Don’t forget to come by the RI Bar Association tonight for this great event!
New lawyers often run in survival mode, and many are still trying to figure out what they want and expect from their careers. On Thursday, November 12, 2009, from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., the Rhode Island Bar Association New Attorney Advancement Task Force offers an evening to step back and take a look at the big picture. Shaping your career to your satisfaction takes a little vision and a lot of perseverance. It is about taking the time to grab the wheel and plot your course for the long haul. Listen to the examples of others who have been there, done that, and ask them questions about how to make the practice of law a satisfying journey as you strive to meet your personal and professional goals.
The event is free to Bar members, and hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served. As space is limited, reservations are required by November 6, 2009. Please contact Bar Association Membership Coordinator Kathleen Bridge by telephone: (401) 421-5740 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
