Young Lawyers' Section

The mission of the Young Lawyers' Section is to enhance the professional growth and public service of new and recently admitted Missouri lawyers. All Missouri lawyers aged 36 or less or, if older, who have been in practice 5 years or less, are automatically members of the section at no additional cost.

YLS sponsors, full or in-part, a variety of public service projects, Continuing Legal Education programs, and social networking events across Missouri that are geared toward young and recently admitted lawyers. The section collaborates with a number of affiliate organizations that also have great opportunities to help new and young lawyers integrate in the profession and serve their communities.

The section helps sponsor Missouri Bar and U.S. District Court enrollment activities and presents awards to deserving lawyers and organizations who show excellence in a variety of ways. 

The section also coordinates volunteers to produce helpful publications for the public on a variety of legal issues.
