Project Links

YLAG operates a very successful program that involves and benefits our own members and the substantive ABA-IPL Section committees. Young Lawyers have opportunities to work on committee projects in areas of their interest and expertise.

YLAG is the conduit linking young lawyers with committee projects and work. Just some of our young lawyer projects include:

  • Research
  • Resolution drafting
  • Program panelist and moderating slots
  • Committee and membership recruiting initiatives
  • Webinars
  • Articles for Landslide┬« magazine
  • Books peer review, chapter assistance

Please contact Sharra Brockman for any information and questions.

Publishing Opportunity in Landslide Magazine

Landslide magazine is offering a publishing opportunity for a YLAG member to write an article on any topic related to the theme BOUNDARIES as part of the Meeting of the Minds program. The young lawyer would be teamed up with a senior member of the ABA-IPL Section who will oversee the article. Please email a brief description of your proposed topic to Krystle Brown (trademark), Matthew Hintz (copyright) or Michael Stramiello (patent).
