The Young Lawyers Committee invites you to a very special event that only happens once every four years! This November, the Commonwealth will once again elect their Attorney General for the next four years. Come learn about the Republican and Democratic candidates, have the chance to attend the first debate between the Party’s nominees, and the big election issues in this lively political debate.

Ms. Barbara Hamm Lee, a seasoned and well-respected figure in media, will moderate the debate. Ms. Lee is the Executive Producer and Host of Another View, a weekly call in talk show that “discusses today’s issues from an African American perspective.” Ms. Lee has been actively involved in television management roles throughout the duration of her career and received numerous awards for her community service and involvement.
