Civic Engagement: Lawyers Leading with Passion and PurposePDF

Dianne Chipps Bailey presented a Mecklenburg County Bar Continuing Legal Education event, "Civic Engagement: Lawyers Leading with Passion and Purpose." For more than a century, members of the Mecklenburg County Bar have dedicated their unique skills and knowledge to ensure that our community is healthy, humane and just. Lawyers have demonstrated their commitment to enhancing the quality of our civic life in countless ways. Strategic pro bono representation, elected and appointed office, nonprofit board service and thought leadership by lawyers have created meaningful and lasting change in Mecklenburg County and beyond. During this lunch conversation, Bailey explored the evolving landscape confronting lawyers in community service. She discussed strategies to manage personal and professional risk associated with voluntarism in an increasingly complex regulatory environment marked by vigorous governmental enforcement actions and heightened media scrutiny. The goal of the luncheon session was to give emerging and seasoned lawyers alike the confidence to honor the Mecklenburg County Bar’s legacy of leadership by serving today with passion and purpose.
The event was held at Robinson Bradshaw's Charlotte Office and attendees received 1.0 CLE ethic hour.
