One of the best ways to network with practitioners is at Continuing Legal Education (“CLE”) events, which all attorneys must attend annually per State Bar regulations. For example, you might consider attending any of the following events sponsored by the State Bar of Georgia and its Institute of Continuing Legal Education. Reach out to the presenters, who are generally experts in their given field, and chat casually with those seated around you. Remember to ask for cards and to follow up after the seminar for more one-on-one discussions.
