We Need You: It’s Time to Sign Up for This Year’s Lunch with a Lawyer Program
Lunch with a Lawyer program needs judges and lawyers of all stripes including ADAs, PDs, private practitioners and AGs to sign up.  Please sign up for this wonderful program where you will meet a promising youth for a chat over lunch.  Very often the youngster has an interest in law already, but frequently the interaction sparks a career interest in the legal profession. By casual and informal encounter over a lunch during the summer we aspire to create a positive role model for the assigned youth. You will be contacted with details. 

Every year we seek volunteers from the bar to have a lunch with a youth of our community.  The youths are provided by the City of Raleigh from its Summer Youth Employment program, which is a spinoff of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act of 1973.  The program offers work to those with low incomes and the long term unemployed as well as summer jobs to low income high school students. The intent was to impart a marketable skill that would allow participants to move to an unsubsidized job.  The Lunch with a Lawyer aims to reach out to the minority community, provide the youths with an opportunity to meet with a professionals and create a role model for the participating youth in an informal setting such as lunch.  It constitutes part of continuing efforts by the bar to improve the public image of lawyers and to promote better relations with the community we serve.  You will be assigned a wonderful youth for a lunch around mid-June.
