On behalf of the Northern District of Ohio Chapter of the Federal Bar Association, welcome. Ours is one of the largest and fastest growing chapters in the country, thanks in part to our many law student members and the faculty who participate actively on our board. Law students turn into Younger Lawyer members, who turn into, well, -- older members -- and eventually most of us connect, personally or professionally. At least that’s how it is here in Cleveland, where I've been practicing for nearly 30 years.
Please check out our committee links and consider getting involved. Whether you are an aspiring community volunteer, a CLE speaker, a deep thinker on national issues, or you just want to learn more about our federal courts or mingle with your colleagues at social networking events, we have a niche for you.
In the near future, look for a redesigned home page, and our first-ever national CLE webinar.
If you have ideas about how we can serve you better, I’d like to hear them.
