We are just one week away from GTLA's signature event of the year - the 2016 Annual Convention & President's Gala! This year's education program, which offers 14 CLE Credit Hours - including 3 Trial, 1 Ethics & 1 Professionalism - is highlighted by eight unique tracks spanning a diversity of practice areas and specialties that will be taught by some of the foremost legal minds in Georgia and around the country. We are also pleased to be welcoming nearly one-dozen members of the judiciary to share their insights from the bench. If the educational offerings aren't enough to convince you, wait until you see the lineup of social events that we have planned! Beginning with the Welcome Reception in the Wine Lounge at the Ritz, which is generously sponsored by our friends at Butler Wooten Cheeley & Peak LLP, continuing with the New Lawyers Late Night Party at Whiskey Blue on the rooftop of the W Hotel and highlighted by the can't-miss President's Gala, this year's Convention offers a calendar of special events that is truly unmatched. Reserve your spot today by registering at the link below, and get ready for two action-packed days with your friends and colleagues at the Ritz-Carlton Buckhead. We look forward to seeing you there!
New Lawyers Division
The GTLA New Members Orientation Committee, led by Co-Chairs Jennifer Ivey Range (pictured) and Ryals Stone, welcomed more than 20 new members to the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association with a New Member Mixer at Ormsby's in Midtown Atlanta. Attendees had the opportunity to mix and mingle with fellow new members as well as GTLA staff and leadership, enjoy complimentary food and drinks and play a variety of fun games in the "adult arcade" at Ormsby's. It was a great time had by all, and we enjoyed getting to know the newest trial lawyers in Georgia! If you are a new member to GTLA and would like to find out more about how you can get involved with our association, please contact Co-Chairs Jennifer Ivey Range at jennifer@jenniferiveylaw.com or Ryals Stone at ryalsstone@booneandstone.com.

LEAD Program

The 2015-16 GTLA LEAD Class traveled to the Coastal Empire for the Annual LEAD retreat in Savannah on April 1 - 3. Joined by the GTLA staff, our generous sponsors and local members of GTLA, the LEAD Class enjoyed morning CLE round table discussions and afternoons of exploration and camaraderie as they explored Savannah and continued to build bonds that will last long after the program concludes. The LEAD Class has one final session this year, which is the graduation and will coincide with the Annual Convention next week in Atlanta. 

If you're interested in applying for the 2016-17 LEAD Class - or know someone who might be -  keep an eye out for the application, which will be available this summer!
