I figured this should be a thread.. :)

Are any of you guys thinking about going to the National Bar Associations Convention this yr? It's from July 30-August 6th in Orlando Florida.. I think that the experience would be excellent for the beginning of your legal careers... Even if you can't make it for the entire conference.. consider going to a meeting or two..

I also advise you guys to get involved with the city bar associations when you enter law school.. Some student (city) bar fees are waived..otherwise you'll pay $12 to become a full member.. there are many networking opportunities that will come from this.. Lawyers will mentor you through Young Lawyers Section.. and it will definitely give you an edge with some firms..

You can also join the NBA, it's free.

And for anyone coming to the NYC-Metro area, I have a list of organizations to join, like Blk-Reign suggested, in our area that are either free or the highest joining fee as a law student is $20.

And dont forget Willie Gary's every 2 year Gala. But the knowledge and the connections made will be priceless. Cant wait to meet everyone, I was even thinking about the Black Prosecutors in Philly, so if you"ll know any prosecutors, especially those that will be in Orlando hit me up on PM, because I need to meet with them.

I tried, but I could never get the ball into the hoopy-thing. Then they got mad when I just ran away with it and wouldn't give it back.

I'll probably go for at least some of the events, since my house is less than 1 hour away.  It seems like it would be a great networking opportunity.
