Section Young Lawyers Committee Created

Vol. 37 No. 1

The ABA Section of State and Local Government Law is pleased to announce the creation a Young Lawyers Committee as part of its initiative to reach out to young lawyer members. The new committee’s mission is to introduce state and local government law to the young lawyer through collegiality, opportunities, and leadership. Membership in the committee will be free, and the Section will enroll all eligible members in the committee automatically.

The Young Lawyers Committee offers resources for young lawyers in their respective practices within the ABA Section of State and Local Government Law. It will provide publications and programming on issues affecting the profession, and young lawyers in particular, and assist with business development, professional development, and practice skills. It also will provide opportunities for young lawyers to become directly involved in substantive programming and take on leadership responsibilities. The Young Lawyers Committee will provide a place for members to network and will serve as a gateway to other Section committees and opportunities, including the involvement of diverse young lawyers.

Members of the committee will receive periodic e-mails with information on CLE programs, networking opportunities, quarterly calls, and free presentations for members. As a member, if you have an idea for a CLE program, article of interest to the Section, or other program, or if you are interested in being involved in the committee’s leadership, please contact the Committee’s Chair, Michael Kamprath, at

You do not need to take any additional steps to join. If you are eligible, you will be automatically enrolled. We will add you to the group, and you can expect to receive information about the committee’s activities and publications thereafter. You can sit back and receive the benefits of the committee’s publications, programming, and network, or you can step forward to become involved, share your ideas, participate, and lead.
