THE PERFECT TIME TO PLAN THE NEXT FELLOWS ALUMNI EVENT IS NOW!
Are you an LCLD Fellow thinking about organizing a Fellows’ alumni event in your area? From an informal happy hour to a discussion featuring the general counsel you most admire, planning an alumni event is a great way to connect with Fellows who share your passion for making the profession more inclusive and diverse. Planning an event also helps you build your brand, establish relationships with law firms and legal departments in your area and gets you some invaluable exposure to senior leadership. Fellows interested in planning an event should contact the Program Development Committee of the Alumni Executive Council by clicking here. All class years and geographic areas are encouraged to contact us today!
