EIGHTH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT BAR ASSOCIATION, INC.
young lawyers division (yld) -------------------------------------------
The Young Lawyers Division is a sub-division of the EJCBA. Membership in the Young Lawyers Division is available for all lawyers who are young, who are young at heart, or who wish to provide mentorship to those who are.
The Young Lawyers Division is committed to serving the young attorneys of the Eighth Judicial Circuit of Florida by offering opportunities for mentoring, socializing, continuing education, and to meet and get to know our judges and community assistance programs. Historically, the Young Lawyers Division has raised funds to benefit the local Legal Services community, collected toys and other items for the Children’s Visitation Center, scheduled monthly lunches with our judges, and hosted frequent social events and happy hours focused on young lawyers.
As of July 1, 2023, any member of the EJCBA is invited to join the YLD sub-division. Note that EJCBA YLD differs from the Young Lawyers Division of The Florida Bar, which automatically and exclusively enrolls lawyers under 36 years old or who have been admitted to practice in Florida for less than 5 years. EJCBA YLD encourages experienced attorneys to officially join and to come to all YLD events to share their wisdom with our younger members.
