  • Shape continuing education opportunities as well as participate
  • Build your reputation through:
    • Publications, such as authoring Nebraska Lawyer articles or practice manuals, many of which are initiated by sections
    • Being a CLE presenter, again using connections to sections
  • Shape the law, particularly at the state level, by getting involved with reviewing and proposing legislation, another activity under the auspices of sections
