Get Involved with the YLD!

By Kristen Kirby, YLD Chair

Welcome to the 2020-21 bar year! I am honored to serve as your Chair this year and look forward to working with you all to make this an impactful, fun and productive year for the YLD.

Our great YLD programs and initiatives are only made possible through the involvement and service of volunteers like you. I would like to invite each of you to sign up to serve on one of our 14 committees. The committees cover a broad array of networking, community service, pro bono and educational programs – there is something for everyone!

The YLD is divided into four Divisions – Bar Outreach, Community Outreach, Civic Engagement & Pro Bono and Law Student Outreach – each led by a Division Director. Our Division Directors have put together short videos highlighting the Committees in their Division and explaining the work those Committees do.
