Thank you to everyone who came out for Do’s and Don’ts of Circuit Court Practice, and thank you to all those from the courthouse who put on a comprehensive and informative program.
On Thursday, February 5 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., the New Practitioner Section will participate in our annual community service project at MANNA in Gaithersburg, Maryland. We will be packing food boxes to be distributed at MANNA’s local food centers during the month of February. Spots are filling up, so be sure to RSVP soon to ensure you will be able to participate!
All section members interested in participating should RSVP to Caitlin Grant by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mark your calendars for Wednesday, March 18 from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. for a CLE on the Fundamentals of Trial Advocacy presented by the Honorable Nelson W. Rupp, Jr. and Paul Stein from Stein Sperling Bennett De Jong Driscoll PC. Judge Rupp and Paul Stein serve as professors together in the Trial Practice Program at American University’s Washington College of Law. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to learn the essentials of trial advocacy from these two knowledgeable and experienced presenters.
Stayed tuned for a New Admittee Courthouse Tour and Reception coming in March or early April.
The New Practitioner section will participate in the Annual Meeting & Law Day on April 17 with a program on Solo Practice – From Start to Finish. Come out and learn from the panel of solo practitioners how to navigate a solo practice from beginning to end.
Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen,
and a push in the right direction.

If you have not already, please consider participating in the Montgomery County Bar Association Mentor-Mentee Program. By participating in the Program, experienced attorney-mentors are paired with new-practitioner-mentees. The mentors share their experiences and wisdom with their mentees. Both mentors and mentees build relationships with each other, involve themselves in the Montgomery County Bar Association, and network with other mentors and mentees. With their involvement, each can learn from one another.
If you have practiced law for more than seven years, we encourage you to volunteer as a mentor in the Montgomery County Bar Association Mentor-Mentee Program. If you have been practicing law for less than seven years and would like guidance from a mentor, we encourage you to apply to get a mentor. Applications to be a mentor or mentee are available at http://www.barmont.org/?164, and can be submitted at any time to Rosalyn Tang email@example.com or Eby Kalantar firstname.lastname@example.org.
