The Barristers Committee is comprised of members of CELA in their first ten years of practice. On January 21, 2016, a panel of Barristers will share their insights on being plaintiffs' employment attorneys at the committee's kickoff event. Law Office of Glicel Sumagaysay will moderate the talk. Questions the panel members will answer include: Can I survive financially as a plaintiffs' employment attorney? What are the best types of assignments that will help junior attorneys in the long run, and how does one ask for such assignments?
The Committee and the event seek to inspire and encourage new attorneys to commit to standing up for the civil and human rights of workers.
