Young Lawyers Committee

Mission

Like young attorneys themselves, the Young Lawyers Committee looks to the future. All activities and programs are designed to assist new lawyers in building successful, rewarding professional lives. The committee takes a comprehensive approach to the practice of law, helping young attorneys acquire all the tools needed to build a successful career; from the substantive knowledge and business sense expected of today's attorney to the sprawling networks, strong friendships and balanced perspectives that make professional growth both possible and rewarding.


A Message from the Young Lawyers Committee Chairs:

We are excited to welcome you to the start of the 2018-19 Young Lawyers Committee year. The Young Lawyers Committee serves those Bar members who have been in practice 10 or fewer years. This means you are a dynamic group of attorneys that practice in government, firms, in-house, or as solos and specialize in everything from family law, litigation, criminal law, corporate law, and everything in between. But the common theme we've seen is how engaged and enthusiastic you are. To meet your energy, we've planned numerous events to connect you to one another, practice tips, and the community - including lunchtime meetings, happy hours and breakfasts, as well as monthly special events.

-Andrew Bonnington and Alexis V. Preskar
