Welcome to the 6th Judicial Circuit!

There are several fantastic Florida Bar YLD affiliates who call the Sixth Judicial Circuit home, including the Clearwater Bar Association Young Lawyers Division, the Pinellas Chapter of the Florida Association for Women Lawyers (PFAWL), and the St. Petersburg Bar Association Young Lawyers Section. Each affiliate hosts and manages different events, projects, and initiatives throughout the year to improve our Pinellas and Pasco County communities and also improve the profession.

Although separate and distinct affiliates, each offers reciprocal membership benefits to those interest in becoming “dual members,” and they routinely work together on such projects as Law Week, the Swearing-In Ceremony, the Great Debate, and others. These affiliates each feature a diverse and welcoming group of young lawyers who are committed to community service and the betterment of young lawyers throughout the Circuit. If you are a young lawyer practicing in Pinellas or Pasco counties, be sure to reach out to your Sixth Circuit representatives to find out how to become more involved.
