On Sunday, Dec. 22, GTLA's New Lawyers Division spent the day at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, where they volunteered in the hospital's activity center – The Zone – and made holiday arts & crafts with the children. It made for a great day of service, and our NLD was invited back to volunteer again, which they plan on doing very soon.

A big THANK YOU to all who joined in on this service project. For more information on how you can get involved with the New Lawyers Division, please contact NLD Chair Betty Davis at
