The Florida Bar YLD Summit on Young Government Lawyers

November 1, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 4:45 pm UTC+0

Join the Young Lawyers Division for a day with former and current government lawyers from all branches of government including Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services Nikki Fried, Secretary of the Department of Juvenile Justice Simone Marstiller, Fifth District Court of Appeal Judge Meredith Sasso, Chief Judge of the Ninth Judicial Circuit Don Myers, Eleventh Circuit Public Defender Carlos Martinez, Seventh Circuit State Attorney RJ Larizza, and many others.  There will be four panels throughout the day: Executive Branch, Criminal Justice, Judicial Branch, and a catchall panel that highlights frequently overlooked government offices including local governments, the court system, the university system, and The Florida Bar.  These panels will discuss issues facing young government lawyers and the offices that employ these lawyers, the career paths of the panelists, and ideas and solutions about how to engage young government lawyers, both within the individual offices but also with the community and The Florida Bar.  At lunch, there will be small roundtables where individuals in attendance can engage in the discussion.  The event is free to all attendees.  Space is limited and you must register.  A light breakfast, lunch, and snacks will be provided throughout the day.
