Young Lawyers

The Young Lawyers committee aims to help 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.

All Columbus Bar members with ten or fewer years of practice are automatically members of this committee.
