Neighborhood Networking

GAWL hosts several neighborhood networking breakfasts, lunches, and happy hours (affectionately known as our NNBs, NNLs, and NNHHs) throughout the Atlanta metropolitan area. Attendees include law students, law professors, in-house counsel, private practitioners, government attorneys, and judges. Topics under discussion range from tips on how to start and run your own practice to tips on how to breast-feed during trial. 

Whether you live in Atlanta, Buckhead, Decatur, North Fulton, Cobb, or Perimeter -- GAWL has a networking opportunity near you! We are also always interested in establishing new NNBs, NNLs, and NNHHs. So please let us know if you would like to organize one in your neighborhood.
