Caitlin Emling, an attorney in Shutts & Bowen LLP’s Orlando office, was recently appointed Co-Chair of the Orange County Bar Association’s (OCBA) Judicial Relations Committee.
Caitlin will serve the OCBA Judicial Relations Committee alongside fellow Co-Chair Judge Sandor to maintain relationships with judges from key courts throughout Central Florida for the benefit of OCBA members. These relationships help to keep members updated on the efforts of the circuit and county courts, as well as the Legal Aid Society, OCBA President and the Young Lawyers Section.
Founded in 1933, the OCBA is a voluntary association with over 3,250 members and serves as the primary vehicle for area attorneys to meet, exchange information related to their legal specialty areas, and provide valuable legal and community services to residents in surrounding communities. The Legal Aid Society was established by OCBA leadership in the 1960’s to fulfill the Bar’s strongly-held value of ensuring access to justice for all. Unique in the nation, the relationship between the OCBA and the Legal Aid Society includes OCBA membership requirements for attorneys to take two pro bono cases annually, make a financial contribution, or undertake specific community projects through the Legal Aid Society. Shutts & Bowen currently has 100% of their Orlando attorneys featured as active OCBA members.
