The Young Lawyers Section (YLS) Executive Committee is a fantastic opportunity for you to take a leadership role in the Bar, network with friends and colleagues, create avenues for potential new clients, and make a name for yourself in this early part of your career.

What is the CBA/YLS Executive Committee?
The Executive Committee is your chance to take a leadership role in the YLS.

These committees actively engage in planning and implementing programming catered to each area of the law, and they provide an excellent opportunity for young lawyers to explore the area of law in which they practice and begin to make a name for themselves there. The committee chair positions that may comprise the 2019-2020 Executive Committee are found on the application.
