On January 21, 2015, members of the BCBA Young Lawyers Committee gathered at the Mount Washington Tavern for a Lunch & Learn with the Hon. Darryl Fletcher, retired judge, District Court of Maryland for Baltimore County. Judge Fletcher graciously volunteered to sit down with the young lawyers for an open panel lunch dedicated to general district court practice. It was a rare opportunity for the young lawyers to obtain advice directly from the bench. The questions ranged from general trial practice, to questions that were specific to certain practice areas, and the young lawyers were able to learn what to do and, more importantly, what not to do.
With approximately ten young lawyers in attendance the event was a great success. The Young Lawyers Committee would like to thank Judge Fletcher for his insight and wisdom, as well as the staff at the Mount Washington Tavern for the delicious food. Keep your eyes out for a Lunch & Learn for Circuit Court Practice this spring!
