“Career Development Initiative” Begins Now!

Vol. 15 No. 10

Alma Zuniga is an attorney with the Northwest Justice Project in Yakima, Washington.

Educating young lawyers on new career paths, providing opportunities to experience different areas of law, and encouraging good work—these are some of the goals of the ABA Young Lawyers Division's new Career Development Initiative (CDI) launching this month. 

CDI, the ABA YLD 2011–2012 member service project, promises to deliver young lawyers valuable tools to help them get ahead in their careers. CDI will feature articles, podcasts, and other resources that explore a variety of career choices. Participants will examine the potential benefits, drawbacks, and steps a young lawyer should take to enter a new area of law.

Each month a different topic will be showcased on the CDI website:
