Letter from the Chair of the Forum

By Mellania E. Safarian
Clark Hill LLP


It was an absolute pleasure meeting all of you at our February Meet-Up, Game Night. It was a great way to unwind and get to know some of our new members. We hope you will continue to join us at future events. But for those of you who couldn’t join us, the NLF will be hosting a meet-up every third Thursday of the month, a CLE once per quarter, in addition to several community service based activities. The goal of these events is to engage members, facilitate relationships, and establish support systems by offering a wide range of networking opportunities specifically designed for new lawyers.
