Membership in a local chapter offers many advantages: monthly meetings with programs of particular interest and educational value; advice and counsel of others in specified areas of legal procedure; development of friendships with those sharing similar interests and goals in the legal field; and an organization which can provide assistance to its local community in many different ways.
