Roundtable Tips For Law Students

NCBL-DC will be holding a panel for law students, individuals considering going to law school, and recent law school graduates to give tips on starting their own firms, pros and cons.  This event will take place at Howard University School of Law this Fall 2019.  Each quarter we will host a session with a different subject.

On February 20, 2020, from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm, NCBL-DC host their first Quarterly Socials at Brasserie Beck, located at 1101 K Street, NW, Washington, DC 20005.  We will gather to enjoy good times and unwind with lawyers, law students, legal assistants and NCBL- DC members.  Open to the public.  Feel free to invite friends.  Come join us as we kick back and relax after the day's work.  There will also be information on joining NCBL-DC at our socials.  Check back here often for dates, time, and locations of future NCBL-DC events.

Ft. Worth, TX Police Officer Aaron Dean shot and killed 28 year old Atatiana Jefferson, a  woman in her own home while she was playing with her young nephew.  Officer Dean resigned before being fired.  He was charged with murder.  Let's stay prayerful that justice is meted out in yet another white police shooting of an unarmed African American.
