Networking Works: Building a network is key as attorneys begin legal careers

By Patrick Connelly

The Buffalo Law Journal mentioned the NYSBA’s Commercial and Federal Litigation Section and its work to remove gender disparity in the courtrooms. (may require subscription)

Attorneys Christina Gullo Largo and Caitlin O’Neil are still surprised at the large number of people who came to an after-work event in June that they helped plan.

Both are vice presidents of the Rising Champions of Justice board, a recently created group that’s part of the Erie County Bar Association’s Volunteer Lawyers Project.

The group’s goal was to plan an annual event that would appeal to a younger crop of lawyers. Attendees could have fun while learning about VLP and its programs.

Largo, O’Neil and other board members settled on a mixer at Big Ditch Brewing Co. in Buffalo.
