Upcoming Section Meetings


 2018-19 Juvenile Law Section Report
Caitlin E. Whalan, Chair and Marjory J. Timothy, Vice Chair

In early October 2018, the Juvenile Law section hosted their annual business meeting to outline section events for the 2018-19 year. The section leadership ensured members stayed up to date on relevant information and changes by holding meetings every other month.  

In mid- December, the section enjoyed food, fellowship and stocking stuffing during their annual holiday party. The stockings were stuffed with toiletries and snacks and the Cabarrus County Detention Center was the benefactor of their generous donation.

The section hosted their annual Juvenile Law section conference on February 15, 2019 and the conference was well attended.

Section leaders look forward to the upcoming year, including social opportunities and increased CLE programming.  Any ideas or suggestions for future events or CLE’s may be submitted to sections@meckbar.org.
