Young Lawyers Section

What is the Young Lawyers Section (YLS)? 
The New Orleans Bar Association's Young Lawyers Section (YLS)  is where new lawyers get to know one another and the local legal community, network with experienced professionals, and offer valuable community service in the New Orleans area. YLS programs are diverse and underscore a commitment to professional development and service...while having a great time! There's always something happening with the YLS!
