Young Lawyers Section Future of the
The focus of the 2013-2014 Young Lawyers Section bar
year will be on the future of the legal profession. Events, special
projects and articles developed through out the year will address what
is no longer working for the legal profession as well
as open discussions as to what alternatives exist to
create a legal profession where job satisfaction and success are not at
odds. The YLS hopes to start a conversation across all areas of the
legal market on how this industry needs to change, and how we need to be
planning for what it will be, not what it has been. Learn
more about the series.
