Banner & Witcoff jumped at the opportunity for sponsorship at the American Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division (YLD) Spring Conference held in Washington, D.C. on May 12, 2000, attended by more than 300 young lawyers from across the nation.
One of the firm’s recently elected shareholders, Christopher Glembocki, has been very active with this group for the last 3 years and served on the Host Committee for this conference. The firm chose to sponsor the first round of drinks at the social event following the U.S. Supreme Court reception-one of the most highly attended functions of the conference.
ABA/YLD is comprised of approximately 130,000 members of the ABA who are 36 years of age or younger and/or in their first five years of practice. It is an excellent group for young associates to be involved in, as it provides many opportunities for networking and more.
