Eventbrite - May YLD CLE & Happy Hour


The Community Involvement Committee is hosting a group for:

Union Gospel Mission's Search & Rescue Van
Volunteer with the YLD to help take care of some of our communities most vulnerable people.

Thursday, June 2nd, 2016 | 7:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.
UGM Men's Shelter, 8498 Seaview Pl NW


The YLD is looking for eight (8) volunteers to assist experienced staff in providing much needed resources for Seattle's homeless population.

As a group, you'll drive around downtown Seattle and invite those sleeping on the street to come back to the shelter for the night. If they decline, volunteers will handout supplies from the van (a blanket, food, a hot drink). An experienced staff person will be leading the group. Their focus will be on the safety of the volunteers. Note: volunteers are not required to bring the van supplies; UGM will provide them.

The Community Involvement Committee is hosting a group for:

Park Clean-Up & Picnic

Saturday, June 11th, 2016 | 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Northacres Park, 12718 1st Ave NE


The YLD is looking for approximately 20 volunteers to help clean-up the Northacres Park in North Seattle (carpool available from downtown Seattle if needed). Family and friends are welcome to help! The group will be removing invasive weeds and spreading mulch over the cleared areas. There will be a supervisor on-site and they will provide tools and gloves. After all the hard work, stick around for lunch on us!

Forty Years in Court: What Works & What Doesn't

Tuesday, June 14, 2016 | 4:00 - 5:00 pm
K&L Gates, 925 4th Ave #2900, Seattle

Presented by: Hon. William L. Downing, King County Superior Court

40 years spent in the courtroom provides a pretty good basis for drawing a few conclusions about what can propel a lawyer toward success or failure there. Specific observations concern attorneys' interactions with court staff, opposing counsel, parties, witnesses and jurors. Could it also be that interpersonal skills play a role in effective written and oral advocacy?

This FREE program will be webcast.

Eventbrite - June YLD CLE & Happy Hour

K&L Gates, Downtown Seattle
June 23, 2015 | 5:00 - 7:00 pm
