Young Lawyers

About the Young Lawyers Section

The Young Lawyers 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. 

Who is a CMBA young lawyer?

A young lawyer is defined as an attorney who is no older than 36 as of May 31st of that year of membership or has been a member in good standing of the Bar in any state for no more than five years, whichever is later.
