Brooks Pierce attorney Sarah Saint was recently named co-chair of the Diversity and Inclusion Committee of the North Carolina Bar Association (NCBA) Young Lawyers Division. The committee strives to increase the numbers of diverse attorneys in North Carolina, expand the inclusiveness of the profession and provide pro bono legal services to minority populations throughout the state.
The NCBA Young Lawyers Division is open to all bar association members under the age of 36 and all lawyers within their first three years of practice. The division provides members the opportunity to network with other legal professionals, hold leadership roles within the NCBA and participate in multiple community service projects throughout the year. Some of the many service projects the Young Lawyers Division is actively involved in throughout North Carolina include Wills for Heroes, Ask-A-Lawyer Day and the NC Legal Feeding Frenzy.
Saint focuses her practice on representing school boards, educational institutions, teachers, administrators and students in a diverse range of education law issues. She also represents businesses in several industries as they seek to resolve disputes, litigating in state and federal court when necessary. Saint currently serves as a member of the Pro Bono Committee for the NCBA, the board of directors of the North Star LGBTQ Community Center and the board of trustees for Triad Stage.
