YLS plans for 2024 during fall meeting

YLS Fall Meeting

The Young Lawyer's Section Council met Friday, Nov. 17, 2023, in Jefferson City to plan for the upcoming year and participate in a community service project. 

The Missouri Bar Young Lawyers’ Section (YLS) works to facilitate the professional growth and public service of new and recently admitted Missouri lawyers. The YLS Council is comprised of approximately 35 lawyers from districts across the state who are elected by their peers to serve two-year terms.  

The fall council meeting served as a planning session to discuss projects and events for 2024, including: 

  • the American Bar Association Young Lawyers' Division Midyear Meeting (Feb. 1-4, 2024),
  • future community service projects,
  • well-being activities, 
  • review of the council's financial support of the Show Me the Constitution high school competition, 
  • planning for The Missouri Bar’s Annual Meeting set for Sept. 18-20 in St. Louis,
  • and an overview of YLS activities in the bar's strategic plan.

In addition to 2024 planning, the council also hosted a clinic where approximately 20 lawyers answered more than 25 non-criminal legal questions from the public. At each meeting, the council strives to host a community service project to help new and young lawyers integrate into the profession and even better serve their clients and communities.
