Why get involved?

Want to get to know other lawyers and have a say in the special interests and concerns of young and new lawyers? YLC functions provide opportunities for young lawyers to meet others in their field, both those just starting out---like yourself---and those who are seasoned in the profession.  Moreover, through its many projects, the YLC is a vehicle through which young lawyers can participate in the VSB, serve the profession and the public, and enhance the public awareness of the legal profession.
