Please join the MBBA Young Lawyers Division at our Virtual Paint’N’Sip! Join your fellow young black lawyers in sharing an evening of wine and art in a relaxed setting, combining the fun and relaxation of a party with the challenge of a class, while we sip on our drink of choice.

Guided by one of our professional artists, we will each work to create a masterpiece that is suitable for framing. Yet with the wine (or beer, if you prefer) flowing freely, the emphasis is definitely on the fun. We encourage conversation and laughter rather than serious focus.
