Young Lawyers

About the Young Lawyers Section

The Young Lawyers Section works to promote young lawyers, develop strong leaders, enhance the image of the legal profession, and provide support within the Cleveland community. The Section provides our members with the opportunity to develop the technical skills necessary to cultivate a career, as well as the ability to participate in networking and charitable activities. Our Section is comprised of 'new' lawyers practicing in every area of the law. This diverse membership allows us to host annual CLEs, providing our members with the tools necessary to develop a strong practice. In addition, we host several social events with other young professional organizations to provide our members with networking opportunities.
