One of the most important ways that a young lawyer can get involved in the Section is through one of its 12 committees. Through the committees, opportunities for leadership are many and limited only by a member's imagination.
The Section's committees are charged with organizing and spearheading activities and events throughout the state, consistent with the agenda set each year by the Executive Council.
A description of the YLS Committees can be found below. Please complete the online form indicating the committee or committees you are interested in.
From there, the YLS committee chair(s) will contact you with further information. Our goal is to involve as many young lawyers in Section activities as possible, and to match them with activities and events, consistent with their level of interest and time constraints.
The time commitment for YLS committee members varies based on the committee and level of involvement. Committee work can range from one to ten hours per month (inclusive of any meetings or programs). Committee meetings are typically held by teleconference and are generally held during the work week and last up to (2) hours.
