Young Lawyers Section


The Young Lawyers Section (YLS) offers great opportunities for professional growth, community service, and networking to its over 9,000 members. This year, the YLS will offer approximately 25 substantive committees, implement over 50 member and public service projects, and host numerous seminars and networking events.

Whether you are a law student or young attorney, the YLS is a valuable resource for your personal and professional development. Consider attending a committee meeting or seminar, a social or volunteer with a member or public service project in order to enhance your career. Get involved and lead through service while improving your legal career and professional network!

This year, the YLS has taken on a special initiative to end distracted driving in our community. Young lawyers will be visiting high schools across Chicagoland to educate students on the dangers of distracted driving, to encourage safe driving, and, ultimately, to save lives. If you are interested in getting involved, we invite you to attend our End Distracted Driving Kick-Off Reception on October 9, 2015 from 5:00 - 7:00 pm here at the CBA. The event is free to attend and you can register here.

If you have questions about the YLS, please contact, Jessica Brierly-Snowdenour YLS Director at (312) 554-2031, or contact me directly.
