The Young Lawyers Section of The Chicago Bar Association hosts many events and programs throughout the bar year designed to provide useful and relevant information along with networking opportunities for the new attorney. Information on upcoming events and opportunities are detailed below.

 

End Distracted Driving Initiative
Our End Distracted Driving Initiative is already generating a lot of positive buzz, but we still need your help to get the word out to local schools that might be interested in hosting an End Distracted Driving Presentation. We are also continually seeking out volunteers to visit high schools throughout Chicagoland to educate students on the dangers of distracted driving.  Learn more here or fill out the volunteer application.


Mentor Legal Prep High School Students
The Young Lawyers Section is recruiting volunteers for Legal Prep Academy’s Mentoring Program. The program matches experienced professionals with Legal Prep sophomores, juniors, and seniors to strengthen their confidence, professionalism, and responsibility. The one-on-one meetings are held at the CBA Building monthly and are structured around particular goals and lesson plans to help guide and motivate the students to succeed in college and develop professionally. Legal Prep asks that mentors make a one year commitment to the program. To indicate your interest, fill out the mentor application. Contact Lena Walsh, mentor program coordinator, with questions at lwalsh@legalprep.org.
