Stepping into Connections is a walking activity, led by one of our gracious members in a community or geographic area of the member's choosing. Stepping into Connections walks are limited to ten members. We hope to fill each walking activity with two law students, two seasoned attorneys, two judges, two young lawyers (lawyers under 36 and new Florida Bar members for the first 5 years), and two community members. We are excited about this new activity and hope you will come join us on our walks!

JWLA February Luncheon
A 60-minute presentation led by David Garfunkel, President of LIFT Jax, addressing the Purpose Built Communities model for tackling poverty and its systemic effects with a focus on the holistic revitalization of neighborhoods. Mr. Garfunkel will focus on lawyers’ roles as community stewards and how the legal community can use its unique skillset as part of the Purpose Built Model’s coordinated implementation of strategies focused on mixed-income housing, cradle-to-career education, community wellness, and long-term financial vitality.
Please join our fellow local bar associations in giving back!
Jacksonville lawyers and their families are invited to come together for a day of unity and service to our community. The Jacksonville Legal CommUNITY Day is on Saturday, January 23, 2021 from 8:30am-3:30pm at Feeding Northeast Florida. Feeding Northeast Florida works to provide food for these children, families, veterans, and seniors so they do not have to choose between paying the rent or buying groceries.
Family members and children accompanied by an adult that are 16 years of age or older are invited to volunteer. Closed-toe shoes are required for participation. We will be working in Feeding Northeast Florida’s food distribution warehouse located at 1116 Edgewood Ave N, Units D/E, Jacksonville, FL 32254.
Two shifts are limited in space so reserve your spot now! 8:30 – 11:30 am 12:30 – 3:30 pm.
