Young Lawyers Division
The Young Lawyers Division of the DeKalb Bar Association comprises attorneys age forty and younger who live and/or work in DeKalb County. The Young Lawyers Division was developed in 2006 as a way for DeKalb attorneys who are new to the practice of law to give back to the community, while getting to know each other.
The DeKalb YLD participates in at least one charitable event each year, in addition to assisting with Law Day. In addition to helping the community, DeKalb YLD offers its members opportunities to gather in social settings at least four times a year. As it is important for members to have an opportunity to meet other new attorneys in the metro area, we are associating with other metro YLD’s in order to offer a more diverse social arena. Furthermore, the DeKalb Bar Association is extremely supportive of the YLD and several of the more seasoned members, along with several of the sitting judges, attend the social events. This makes for a very open and social atmosphere among DeKalb lawyers, an environment that is not easy to find.
The Young Lawyers Division of the DeKalb Bar Association is actively looking for new members in order to better serve our community and to establish the strong roots at the local level. Getting involved with the DeKalb YLD is very rewarding and can be used as a stepping stone to leadership positions locally and statewide. Please contact us today if you are interested in joining.
Student Mentorship Program
Students will be paired up with a mentor in their designated practice area. The mentor will attend one luncheon and one social with the student in order to introduce them to other members. There will be a special social in November honoring our mentors and introducing our student members to the bar.
Intern Referral System
Students will also be featured on an intern referral system available to all members of the bar. Members can now request a paid or unpaid law student intern for a few hours of research, the summer or even the school year.
If you are interested in serving as a mentor or you would like to request an intern, please email our student board members at firstname.lastname@example.org
