Bridge the Gap Program.  Our Bridge the Gap Program provides a great opportunity for new lawyers to tour the Federal, State, and Bankruptcy Courts. Other attorneys are also welcome to join us. We will meet at 9:00 am in front of the Federal Courthouse. If you are interested in attending this event, please contact Nicole Patino at lpatino@elon.edu.

Swearing-in Ceremony.  Each year the Young Lawyers Section sponsors a Swearing-In Ceremony for the admission of newly licensed attorneys to the state and federal courts. Our Swearing-In Ceremony will begin at 3:00 p.m at the Commissioners’ Meeting Room in the Old Guilford County Courthouse. We would love for members of the GBA to join us and support our newly licensed attorneys. Friends and family are also invited to celebrate the occasion. Cell phones and cameras will be permitted at the event. If you are a newly licensed attorney or you know a newly licensed attorney, please e-mail Kristen Redman at kredman@tuggleduggins.com to receive the application materials.

Reception.  A reception serving complimentary hors d’oeuvres and beverages will be held in honor of all newly sworn-in attorneys immediately following the Swearing-In Ceremony at Churchill’s on Elm (213 South Elm Street). We invite you and your guests to attend this reception.
