CHARLESTON, SC – Beth Palmer, an attorney with Rosen, Rosen & Hagood, LLC, was appointed as Chair of the American Bar Association (ABA) Young Lawyers Division’s (YLD) Public Education Law Committee. The YLD Public Education Committee focuses on increasing the public’s understanding of and access to the legal system. The members work closely with the ABA’s Division for Public Education to help them achieve their mission of promoting public understanding of the law and its role in society and to help connect young lawyers with society’s most valuable resources, its people.

“The greatest investment a person can make in his or her own life is education. As attorneys we are fortunate to have had plenty of education and should consider it our duty and privilege to give back, to invest in other people, and, as a result, to invest in the future of our country,” said Palmer.

Palmer’s goals for the year include working closely with fellow members to increase the activity and visibility of the Committee and to promote opportunities to participate in public education activities occurring through the ABA and elsewhere.
