Young Lawyers Section Future of the Profession Series
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.
