The State Bar of Georgia Young Lawyers Division is moving into high gear to support public interest work:
The 2010 YLD Signature Fundraiser, Black tie & Blackjack, will be held at the Atlanta offices of King & Spalding on Saturday, Jan. 9, 2010, in conjunction with the State Bar’s Midyear Meeting. A diverse group of Georgia’s most prominent attorneys and guests will join together with one goal — to raise funds for the YLD’s Public Interest Internship Program (“PIIP”). The goal of PIIP is to provide law school students and recent graduates with summer employment opportunities in public interest, government and non-profit organizations across the state of Georgia. Net proceeds from Black tie & Blackjack will fund stipends for the first class of interns committed to serving the legal needs of Georgia’s growing indigent and underprivileged communities.
