For the Sake of the Profession (1)

  • This is the first of what is intended to be a series of brief posts about contributions to the legal profession, contributions which, when considered together, may create a more accurate sense of what the legal profession is and what it is that we all belong to … whether we appreciate it on a daily basis or not.  My hope is to stimulate a greater appreciation of what it means to be a lawyer and why it is important to contribute to the legal profession.


The CBA offers two free breakfast seminars for lawyers dealing with career change.   The first one was today.  Carmody & Torrance made available a lovely conference room.  Secor Cassidy & MacPartland underwrote the cost of the breakfast.  Beth Griffin, executive director of Lawyers Concerned For Lawyers and Paul Killian, an executive recruiter made very interesting presentations.  There was also a brief segment on ethical issues relating to lawyers leaving law firms.

The second of the free breakfast seminars will be held on Friday, May 8th, starting at 8am at the CBA headquarters in New Britain.  The CBA’s announcement describing the seminar is here.
