About the Young Lawyers Section

Whether you are fresh out of law school or coming to Delaware after years of practice in another jurisdiction, membership in the Young Lawyers Section allows attorneys to become acclimated to the practice of law in Delaware, meet their new colleagues, and learn about the activities of the bar association.  The YLS sponsors informative seminars relevant to the issues facing attorneys new to Delaware practice, provides resources to help them establish roots in the legal community, and promotes collegiality through a variety of social gatherings in all three counties.  The YLS is non-practice specific, so its events present unique opportunities to work with attorneys from all areas of the legal spectrum.  So if you have been practicing for ten years or less in Delaware, we highly encourage you to join the YLS.
