YOUNG LAWYER SHOWCASE The North Dakota Young Lawyers Section (YLS) is enjoying continued success in its support and programming for and by young lawyers. Recently YLS partnered with the Great Plains Food Bank and hosted “Feed Your Community,” which is a state-wide food and fund drive. YLS was able to collect an astonishing 10,548 meals for the Great Plains Food Bank! This breaks down to 4,569 pounds of food, which is the equivalent of 3,808 meals. In addition to the food donations, monetary donations amounted to $1,685, which is equivalent to 6,740 meals. This was the largest state-wide food and funds drive in the 33-year history of the Great Plains Food Bank. A very large thank you to our legal community for the overwhelming support, ultimately making this event such a huge success. The YLS Education and Professionalism Committee will continue to host webinars this fall. Young lawyers, as well as other licensed attorneys, will be invited to participate in the webinars. Please be on the lookout for information on the upcoming webinars. Please contact Jennifer Albaugh, YLS PresidentElect, at to recommend young lawyers for a future showcase or to get involved in the YLS. 12 THE GAVEL
