It probably goes without saying that all of these events are now "virtual". Despite the lack of in-person events, it is still important for lawyers to keep up their relationships and networking skills. Increasing your connections and networks helps with finding referral sources, mentors, new jobs, and building your personal brand. Check out the virtual social events below:
