Each year, volunteers from the YLD organize an early-morning program where young lawyers meet circuit and county judges in the spacious chambers of the chief judge for coffee and breakfast. This event gives attorneys an opportunity to interact with members of the judiciary in an informal setting to ask questions about anything that comes to mind. The program has been enthusiastically received by the judiciary and is now a staple of the YLD calendar. Following Coffee at the Courthouse, YLD members spend the day shadowing judges from the Thirteenth Judicial Circuit and Hillsborough County courts. The Judicial Shadowing Program provides members of the HCBA’s Young Lawyers Division the benefit of direct interaction with the judiciary in a way that may not be otherwise available early in a young lawyer’s career.
