The Young Lawyers Section (“YLS”) provides support and networking opportunities for young lawyers in Bay and surrounding counties. We host monthly happy hours at local establishments as well as other events throughout the year. These events are free for our members and are a great opportunity to meet other young attorneys in all the different fields of law. The YLS is also actively involved in the local community. For example, the YLS participates at the First Saturday Legal Clinic and hosts a toy drive at the annual Christmas party. Additionally, the YLS frequently hosts new, exciting events that involve networking with and learning from judges in addition to wellness and family-friendly activities.
The Young Lawyers Section is open to any attorney age 35 or younger or who has 5 or less years of legal practice. You must be a member of the Bay County Bar Association in order to be a member of the Young Lawyers.
