Roars of laughter echoed in the conference space at the Swissôtel Chicago as the Assembly Roll Call progressed through presentation of the flags and songs associated with each state and bar present at the 2014 Midyear Meeting Young Lawyers Division (YLD) Assembly. Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Sweet Home Alabama” filled the room as delegates from Alabama were presented. Not to be outdone, the delegates from Colorado were introduced by John Denver’s “Rocky Mountain High.” Notwithstanding the fact that John Denver was born in Roswell, New Mexico, Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads” served as introduction to the delegates from West Virginia. After getting through the lighthearted Assembly Roll Call, the Assembly got down to serious business, passing three resolutions after debate, hearing a plethora of guest speakers, and considering reports by ABA YLD Chair Mario Sullivan and ABA YLD Chair-Elect Andrew Schpak.
