"The Bar Association fosters a sense of camaraderie amongst members of the Bar.  For young attorneys in particular, the Bar Association offers a unique opportunity to engage your peers and build relationships with senior attorneys outside of the traditional work environment.  One of the most rewarding aspects of membership is working with attorneys from different practices and generations to give back to the community."
