The practice of law will have to evolve as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. As attorneys adapt to practicing in whatever our new normal looks like over the course of the next year, it is more important than ever to get involved so you can have a voice in these integral changes. YLS is committed to bringing our members together through the use of technology in order to ensure that we are at the vanguard of this transformation, while providing the core programming, networking and professional development opportunities which the NYSBA is known for.

(Membership in the Young Lawyers Section is open only to law students and attorneys admitted 10 years or less)

Perspective

The Young Lawyers Section print newsletter (Perspective) is published by the Young Lawyers Section and distributed to Section Members free of charge. Perspective features substantive legal articles on current issues in all areas of practice, offers more in-depth treatment of professional development, career and networking topics, and provides a forum for expressing opinions and/or commentary on issues affecting young lawyers.

Perspective encourages article submissions on topics of interest to members of the Section. Writing an article for a NYSBA Section publication is a great way to get your name out in the legal community and advertise your knowledge. Our authors are respected state-wide for their legal expertise, and have written articles on such topics as mentoring; balancing job and family; young lawyers in a down economy; and ethics.

Author Guidelines

NYSBA has created comprehensive author guidelines, with information regarding our reprint policy, style guidelines, and obtaining MCLE Author Credits.

Awards

The Young Lawyers Section each year honors a young lawyer who has rendered outstanding service to both the community and legal profession. The Outstanding Young Lawyer Award recognizes an attorney who has actively practiced less than 10 years, and has a distinguished record of commitment to the finest traditions of the Bar through public service and professional activities.
