The Jacksonville Bar Association Young Lawyers Section

The Jacksonville Bar Association Young Lawyers Section (“JBA/YLS”) is composed of area young lawyers who are 35 years old or younger or who have been practicing less than five years. The JBA/YLS has a large and enthusiastic membership and a very active and committed Board of Governors. JBA/YLS is dedicated to providing a diverse array of programs and projects designed to benefit young lawyers, all members of the bar, and our community.

JBA/YLS conducts many recurring and outstanding projects created by our Board. JBA/YLS is also responsible for staffing and conducting numerous other projects in our area created by The Jacksonville Bar Association and The Florida Bar, such as The Florida Bar’s Holiday in January project (to aid foster children in Duval County). JBA/YLS, as an organization, also volunteers on behalf of numerous charitable groups, such as the Special Olympics.
