TIPS - Task Force On Outreach To Young Lawyers

The Task Force on Outreach to Young Lawyers is responsible for facilitating and recruiting membership and participation of young lawyers in TIPS and in developing leadership opportunities for young lawyers in the Section by providing a forum for young lawyers to learn about and become involved in TIPS and Section Governance.

About Young Lawyers

The Tort Trial & Insurance practice has many exciting young lawyers empowering the section. They have become instrumental in the the sections books, publications and CLE's. Our young lawyers are headed for leadership positions among the many TIPS committees. They attend the many meetings and events while learning and networking with the best lawyers in the United States.

The Tort Trial & Insurance Practice Section (TIPS) is one of the leading ABA Sections for the placement of young lawyers in leadership positions. TIPS leadership continues to demonstrate its commitment to the development and recruitment of young lawyers. This Section does more than just talk about young lawyers - we act.

We encourage our Young Lawyers to apply for the TIPS Now scholarship. TIPS NOW! is a leadership initiative that brings young leaders into TIPS.
