Young Lawyers Section
The Young Lawyers Section (YLS) is comprised of more than 750 attorneys practicing in a variety of areas of law throughout Central Florida. Members of the YLS must be under the age of 35 or practicing law five or fewer years. As a new lawyer, the YLS is a valuable resource because it offers an array of opportunities for relationship building, charitable service, and professional growth. Whether you choose to attend a monthly luncheon, volunteer for a charitable project, or chair our next big event, the YLS is the gateway to enhance your career. Get involved!
The YLS's mission is to meet the unique needs and interests of new lawyers by (a) providing a forum for exchanging ideas and offering assistance regarding concerns common to the new lawyer; (b) offering opportunities to enhance their professional skills and knowledge, and ethical development; (c) providing opportunities for career and leadership development, mentoring, and relationship building; (d) offering opportunities to serve on public service committees and charitable projects; and (e) encouraging their interest and participation in the YLS, the Orange County Bar Association, the legal profession, and their communities.
Meeting Time and Location
YLS typically meets for lunch the third Friday of the month from 11:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Citrus Club in downtown Orlando, but check the OCBA website calendar for special events. Please RSVP (luncheons only) to email@example.com.
