On March 10, 2016, the YLD will be hosting a Speed Networking Event on March 10, 2016, the purpose of which is to facilitate a mentor-mentee relationship between our young attorneys and law clerks and distinguished members of the Bar who have been practicing for 10+ years. Our goal is to have attorneys and judges who have achieved success in their respective fields and who have varying expertise and employment backgrounds, so that all guests have an opportunity to make a meaningful connection.
Below are the details of the event:
Date: March 10, 2016
Location: Cuba Libre (Tropicana), Atlantic City

Description: The YLD Speed Networking Event is based loosely on the once popular “speed dating.” Mentor-attorneys will be seated at pre-assigned tables; young attorneys, i.e. mentees, will have the unique opportunity to talk one-on-one with each mentor for a period of 5-6 minutes before moving on to the next table/mentor. This organized networking process will last for a total of 1-1.5 hours. Thereafter, the YLD will host an informal reception for anyone who wishes to continue their conversations. During this reception, guests will be able to purchase drinks and appetizers at reduced (happy hour) prices.
Unlike our outher events, the Speed Networking Event will be RSVP only!! Only young lawyers who have RSVP’d and paid in full by 3-3-16 will be permitted entrance.
