The Atlanta Lawyer February / March 2019 - Page 5

Law Internship Program has introduced high school students from our community to law as a profession, providing support, mentorship, friendship, and knowledge for over twenty five years. G. Wayne Hillis, Liz Price, and Seaborn Jones co-chair the Minority and Diversity Clerk- ship program, offering firm clerkships to diverse first year law students attending Georgia’s law schools. The Law School Outreach Commit- tee, led by Caren Cloud and Jessica Wood, works with current law students to introduce them into our professional network. Our new Side Bar Initiative, led by Betsy Griswold, Chris Lightner, and Nora Robb, links together lawyers at all levels of practice to develop relationships and learn from each other. And the Wellness Committee is finding ways to make all of us stronger, healthier, and happier lawyers. Every day, I have the great privilege of working with students who will become our colleagues in three short years. Their intellect, hope, and ideas teach me as much, if not more, than I teach them. Their hard work and dreams will change our profession, providing for a future of lawyers that is reflective of our greater community and that collaborates across generations to solve vexing problems. Our time invested in working with future, and new, lawyers is time well spent. The future of law is creating a legacy where all who need help solving a legal problem can be served by a community of innovative humans who use every tool they have – including knowl- edge, technological tricks, human empathy and understanding – to ensure that the need is met. 05/07 2019 LEADING SPONSORS ANNUAL ATLANTA BENEFIT RECEPTION FOR THE SOUTHERN CENTER FOR HUMAN RIGHTS HONORING EVENT DETAILS THE FOUNDRY AT PURITAN MILL ATLANTA, GEORGIA 6:00PM-9:00PM DONALD F.
