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:
- Resolution drafting
- Program panelist and moderating slots
- Committee and membership recruiting initiatives
- Articles for Landslide® magazine
- Books peer review, chapter assistance
Please contact Sharra Brockman for any information and questions.
