New year, new opportunities

Updated: Jun 18, 2021

We hope your year is off to a great start. Just a few updates and what the PILS leadership is working on that you might be interested in learning about!

Juvenile Certification Review Course

Our Annual Certification Review Course will be held on April 17th and 18th at Barry University, Dwayne O. Andreas School of Law in Orlando. More details are coming shortly.

Save the Date! PILS Next Meetings

We had great committee & EC meetings during the Bar’s Winter Meeting! Please SAVE THE DATE now for our section’s meeting during the Bar’s Annual Meeting which will be held on June 19, 2020 in Orlando. We typically have committee meetings from 8-9:30am and then the EC meetings 10-12. You are all invited to attend, but will need to RSVP when the time comes. Hint: Breakfast is provided!


We still have space for you to join a committee if you’re interested. In addition to the ones listed on our website, we also have 5 newer committees which you can join:

Advocacy, Engagement, Networking, Professional Development and Recruitment.

Newsflash: We now have a Chair for the Homelessness Committee so please reach out to me if you’d like to join that committee. I’m still working on a Chair for the Disability Rights Committee and will let everyone interested in joining that’s reached out when we do. I will also let our entire section know when in a subsequent newsletter.


Our latest webinars, including the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies & the Fair Credit Reporting Act Webinar, are available for you to watch and get CLE credit by visiting our website.

Website & Social Media

We’ve recently turned over to The Florida Bar Communications department our questionnaire to help guide the website overhaul which they’re undertaking on behalf of PILS. We are the first section taking advantage of this benefit and are incredibly excited to share our tips and lessons learned from this process.

Sally McArthur is leading our effort for the website so please feel free to reach out to her directly at any time. As a reminder, we’re on FB & Twitter so please like our pages. If you have any content or information you’d like for us to share, please reach out to Sally.

Board of Governors Meeting

We presented at the December BOG meeting in Orlando, and received lots of great feedback on our presentation. If you’re interested in seeing the one-pager I created and provided to the BOG, please email me and I’ll send it right back. In fact, we will make sure to post it on our website when we re-launch an updated one.

If you have any questions or want to join a committee, please feel free to reach out and we’ll make sure to connect you to the right resources. We’re here to help!

Best Regards,

Ericka Garcia, Esq.

Public Interest Law Chair
