CURRENT COMMITTEE MEMBERS:  See important membership information below.

Having a highly-regarded practice in the current legal landscape entails more than just the quality of your work product.  It also requires a strong network and an awareness of trends in your practice area, not just for the sake of developing business, but also to make the "work" in your work/life balance more personally rewarding.

KALAGNY's committees have provided our members with countless opportunities to enrich these aspects of their legal practice, whether by offering CLEs and other programs, planning and hosting social gatherings or simply bringing members together to collaborate on a committee's shared goals.  Committee participation encourages members to build closer relationships and become long-term resources for their fellow committee members.

KALAGNY's online committee sign-up page has been redesigned to make it easier for our members to join the committee(s) of their choice.  To join, select "Join a KALAGNY Committee" on the left sidebar on our homepage.  On that page, click the name of your desired committee to open the corresponding form.  Once your form is received and your eligibility is confirmed, you will receive an email confirming your committee membership.
