Young Lawyers And Law Students

The Young Lawyers Division (YLD) has a committee specifically dedicated to our practice area. All young lawyers (those under age 36 or have been in the profession for five years or less) are members of the YLD, no extra dues need be paid. The committee offers opportunities to get involved and benefits for its members. To join the YLD committee, click below.

    Welcome to the Section's Young Lawyers' Center. Young lawyers typically have had little to no experience with this committee's areas of law when they graduate law school. The YLD, through its 101 and 201 series, teaches new and more experienced lawyers how to do fundamental tasks of lawyering. The YLD's Infrastructure and Regulated Industries Section composes checklists in our legal areas guiding you through these tasks. All young lawyers, as members of the YLD, can access these checklists here. Want to add a checklist for our collection? Contact me or any of the vice chairs.
