Younger Lawyers Division
Message form the Chairs of the Younger Lawyers Division Committee
Welcome to the Younger Lawyers Division of the Federal Bar Association of Los Angeles! This section is dedicated to putting together and hosting events for young lawyers throughout the city who have or seek an active federal practice. YLD events range from brown bag lunches with local federal district court and magistrate judges, to the Behind the Windows of the Clerk's Office program, a behind-the-scenes look at federal practice. We actively encourage all young lawyers under the age of thirty-six to join, and we are always looking for suggestions for new events. If you would like to get involved, please email any of the co-chairs at the addresses below. We look forward to hearing from you, and to seeing you at one of our upcoming events!

FBA-LA Mentorship Program
Our mentorship program is designed to assist law students and newer lawyers as they begin their legal careers. Newer lawyers are matched one-on-one with experienced federal lawyers or jurists based on their area of interest, type of practice, career goals and other criteria, and enjoy the opportunity to network and benefit from the experience of seasoned practitioners.
The program is open for members of the FBA-LA who have been in practice for 5 years or fewer.
If you are interested in participating in the FBA-LA mentorship program, please CLICK HERE to fill out an application form. A representative of our Board of Directors will contact you promptly.
To participate in the FBA-LA mentorship program, you must be a current member of the FBA. If you wish to become a member, CLICK HERE for a membership application form.
