From a Section Member:
"My impetus for joining the General Practice Section was not because I’m a general practitioner—because I am not. But in my field, I realized that there were so many different disciplines in the law that I was not aware of sufficiently and did not keep up my knowledge as I should have.
In my field of matrimonial law, you deal with such things as intellectual property law, patents—anything that a person can own or be involved in, you have to know something about. The General Practice Section, to me, was an area where I could get a glimpse of all of these other kinds of disciplines that would be of value to me and my practice. And it has worked out beautifully."
