Networking Groups and Committees

Practice sections provide a unique opportunity for LAJ members to network with other members who also have an interest in a particular area of the practice of law.

The e-mail list server of each section provides a quick, efficient and cost-effective way to pose questions to other members, to share ideas and to stay current on important practice issues. Section members also share articles and other pertinent information and meet periodically for face-to-face networking.

Section members know that there’s power in numbers, and they understand that the best way to make a difference is to become involved.
