Christian Legal Society is excited to offer the CLS Online Gathering, an online gathering of CLS friends with the purpose of creating community and mentorship using an online platform.
Many legal professionals have told us of their desire to have regular fellowship with other Christian lawyers, but how geography, time, or other barriers keep them from regularly attending CLS chapter meetings. We are thrilled to offer an online gathering where such issues will no longer prevent getting together with other lawyers and law students of faith and where you can be encouraged with great speakers and fellowship.
If you are already active in a local CLS chapter, you are welcome to join us, but it is our hope that you will remain actively involved in your local chapter. The CLS Online Gathering is not a CLS chapter nor is it a replacement for your local, in-person fellowship. It is intentionally designed for those who do not have easy access to a CLS chapter.
Meeting Time & "Location"
The CLS Online Gathering will be the fourth Tuesday of every other month from 1:45 to 2:45 pm Eastern unless otherwise noted.
Next Gathering: Human Trafficking Prevention on Tuesday, January 25, 2022 (1:45 p.m. - 2:45 p.m. EST)
January is National Human Trafficking Prevention Month. We are excited to welcome Amanda Paletz, the legal director of The Joseph Project, to present on the topic of human trafficking. She will provide an overview of the vital role that attorneys play in combating human trafficking through understanding the scope of the problem, and identifying potential survivors. She will also discuss the role attorneys can play in assisting human trafficking survivors. You will also learn how the law can be leveraged to help transition survivors out of exploitation and into empowerment. Click here for more information about Mrs. Paletz and the Joseph Project.

Invite Your Friends
Please feel free to forward this information to lawyers you think would enjoy attending the CLS Online Gathering. You do not need to be a member of CLS to participate. This is a great way to encourage other lawyers in their faith.
We are hoping you will make it a priority to attend the CLS Online Gathering as a way of having a regular time of fellowship with other Christian attorneys and law students, especially if you are not in a location where a local CLS chapter regularly meets. It might help change the way you feel about the practice of law.
If you are interested in the CLS Online Gathering but cannot join us, please email CLS at email@example.com, so we can keep you in the loop on our upcoming plans and speakers.
