State Bar membership affords each member the opportunity to get involved with community events, bar events, and other legal organizations.
Volunteering one's time decreases stress, fosters good relationships, creates an avenue for networking opportunities, builds a positive image of the legal profession, and gives back to the community!
Have you ever thought about giving back to your profession? Maybe Mentoring is what you're looking for. Perhaps, it's amending rules or proposing new legislation -- then you might consider applying to serve on a State Bar committee or section executive council.
Maybe you're interested in supporting young people as they show an interest in the law. Volunteering as a judge for the state's Mock Trial competition is a great way to engage students from around the state. While you're visiting the Arizona Foundation for Legal Services & Education's Web site, search for other volunteer opportunities.
