The Young Lawyers Division of The Florida Bar is excited to introduce you to our Find an Affiliate website for all Affiliates; including Law School Affiliates
For Affiliates, including Law School Affiliates, this website gives you an opportunity to promote your events, engage with lawyers in your community, and partner with organizations locally and across the state.
For young lawyers, the website will keep you up-to-date on the happenings in your community, so that you can get involved, make an impact, and connect with your legal community.
The Find an Affiliate website is also where all of the Young Lawyers Division Affiliate Grant applications and deadlines can be found, and where you’ll be able to find more information as it’s made available about our largest event, the Affiliate Outreach Conference (AOC).
We hope that you’ll be able to find all of your Affiliate resources on the Find an Affiliate website, but if there’s something missing or if you have any questions/concerns, please feel free to reach out to Affiliate Chair, Celia Thacker Dorn (firstname.lastname@example.org), Local Bar Affiliates Committee Chair, Richard McChesney (email@example.com), Law School Affiliate Chair, Ciara Willis (firstname.lastname@example.org) or YLD Section Administrator, Tom Miller (TMiller@floridabar.org).
What is an affiliate?
- An affiliate is an organization, not a person. The Florida Bar YLD’s definition of an Affiliate is “Any (1) young lawyer organization, or (2) young lawyer component of any voluntary bar association in the Florida legal profession in which membership is dedicated to the cause of young lawyers.”
- To become a recognized Affiliate of The Florida Bar YLD, you must certify that your organization fits into one of these two categories. Please sign the certification page and provide the requested contact information to the Local Bar Affiliates Chair. The YLD board will then vote to approve your organization as an Affiliate at an upcoming board meeting.
