The CBA YLS held its annual legislative breakfast at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford on May 3. Section members met with Attorney General George Jepsen, State Comptroller Kevin Lembo, and State Representatives Christine Conley and Stephanie Cummings at the event.

     
 

Both featured guest speakers, State Representatives Christine Conley and Stephanie Cummings, are practicing attorneys, in the first year of their freshman term, and sit on the Joint Committee on the Judiciary. They spoke about how their training as a lawyer has helped them focus on the issues, look at unintended consequences and possibility liabilities, and utilize their negotiating skills to achieve agreement outcomes. Similar to their careers in the legal profession, they both emphasized the importance of following through on what you say you will do and sticking to your word.

     
  All of the government officials in attendance encouraged the young lawyers to continue their social and political networking and run for a position in their local town or city government.
