2015-16 Community Services Committee Report
Erin Taylor, Chair & Barrett Morris, Vice-Chair
The Community Service Committee (CSC) seeks to improve and prioritize the Bar’s volunteer outreach opportunities and to collaborate with the community on legal issues, the legal system, and school and community needs.
The CSC approved six community service projects this fiscal year, including the Young Lawyers Division’s (YLD) Know Your Rights Clinic and Ask-A-Lawyer Day, in which the YLD aided more than 30 community members in under two hours.
The CSC is working to collaborate with the Mecklenburg Bar Foundation (MBF) by exploring the idea of offering to help secure volunteer assistance for MBF grant recipients.
