Raleigh, N.C. – On January 31, 2015, our own Sharita Whitaker Co-Chaired one of the North Carolina Bar Association (NCBA) Minorities in the Profession Committee’s signature annual events, ¡Adelante! Moving Forward, a program designed to teach law school students the skills necessary to transition successfully from law school into the work force and help them learn the value of effective professional networking.
