The New Orleans Bar Association Young Lawyer Leadership Program

The New Orleans Bar Association Young Lawyer Leadership Program is designed to encourage the participation of minority, solo/small firm, government, in-house, and military service attorneys in the New Orleans Bar Association (“NOBA”). NOBA. This program is designed to help young lawyers become actively involved in NOBA’s meetings and committees and pipeline them to the NOBA leadership by: (1) involving young lawyers in the work of the YLS with the hope that they will develop into future leaders of the YLS and the NOBA organization at large; and (2) enhancing the image of the YLS among young lawyers in our community. Up to three awards will be made to attend the March 20-22, 2020 Bench Bar Conference. Applications must be received by February 28, 2020.
