Young Lawyers Section

The Young Lawyers Section (YLS) is comprised of more than 750 attorneys practicing in many areas of law throughout Central Florida. Members of the YLS must be under the age of 35 or practicing law five or fewer years. The YLS is an invaluable 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 the next YLS event, your participation is the gateway to enhance your career. We encourage you to get involved!

YLS is having a Special Election to fill the seat of Kathleen Shea who has resigned from the position.  This is a one year term that will end on May 31, 2023.  Nominations must be received by Tuesday, July 5, 2022.  To obtain the special election nomination form click here

Purpose

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 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 interest and participation in the YLS, the Orange County Bar Association, and the legal profession in our communities.
