February 21, 2017 at the Capital Club.
Meade Mitchell, CABA President; Jack McCants, Program Chair; and Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves were the speakers for this luncheon.
January 19, 2017 • Brent's Apothecary • Hosted by CABA and JYL
When Meade Mitchell asked the Social Committee to create new opportunities for CABA and JYL members to interact with each other, the committee members looked to their law school experiences for inspiration. Before bar review became synonymous with long hours of cramming and stressing, for some it was an excuse to blow off steam with classmates at a local bar or pub after a long week of hoping a professor did not single you out on the one day you did not do the reading, struggling through book pulls and source citing, and drafting moot court briefs.
CABA and JYL hosted the first “Bar Review” on January 19, 2017, from 5:30 to 7:30 PM, at Apothecary, which is owned by fellow CABA member Brad Reeves. Brad and Scott Murray were instrumental in ensuring that the event went off without a hitch. Although the weather was bleak early, Bar Review — which was billed as an opportunity for “face-to-face social networking” — was well-attended. Apothecary was a great venue for the Bar Review as the drink offerings were unique and diverse, and the mixologists were on their A-game all night.
CABA and JYL also raffled a $100 gift card to Brent’s Drugs/Apothecary that was won by Brandon Dorsey. The initial plan was to hold two Bar Review in 2017; however, given the success of the first event, CABA and JYL look forward to hosting a number of other events around the Capital Area.
