Wyoming Young Lawyers Conference set in Laramie

(Cheyenne, Wyo.) – The Young Lawyers Section of the Wyoming State Bar is pleased to be hosting its second Young Lawyers Conference at the Holiday Inn in Laramie, Wyoming, April 17 – 18, 2014. There are currently 125 young lawyers who belong to the section.

 The conference is targeted to those attorneys who have practiced law for fewer than five years.

Conference presenters are comprised of Wyoming lawyers from around the state including a spirited game of “Ethically Jeopardy” with the Honorable Wade E. Waldrip playing the part of Alex Trebek as the host. Other speakers include the Honorable Nancy D. Freudenthal, the Honorable Scott W. Skavdahl, both from the United States District Court, retired Cheyenne judge Peter G. Arnold and Wyoming Attorney General Peter K. Michael. Presenting from Laramie will be attorneys Tori Kricken and Tom Fleener.

Young lawyers will earn continuing education credit at programs such as “Favored and Disfavored Conduct in Federal District and State District Courts,” “Effective Legal Writing,” “Practical Application of the Rules of Civil Procedure,” “Solo Practice for Beginners,” and more.

While in the Laramie community, the young lawyers will participate in “Young Lawyers Give Back.” Young lawyers attending the conference have been encouraged to donate much-needed items to Interfaith-Good Samaritan.

Interfaith-Good Samaritan is a community based, not-for-profit, charitable organization that cooperates with other agencies and organizations to assist women, men, and children in emergency situations. Interfaith provides a tremendous service to the Albany County community by offering a cornucopia of much needed financial and material resources to those in need. From hosting a local food bank to helping folks cover their winter heating bills, Interfaith is a full service community charity.

The collection and the distribution will be coordinated by the Wyoming State Bar Young Lawyers Section.

Anyone wishing further information about the conference or Young Lawyers Give Back should contact the Wyoming State Bar at (307) 432-2102.
