VSB Young Lawyers Conference Wins National Awards

The Virginia State Bar Young Lawyers Conference (YLC) received Special Recognition for the American Bar Association Young Lawyers Division’s prestigious 2020 Award of Achievement for best comprehensive programs.  

The YLC won the award in 2018 and 2019, besting young lawyer groups of large state bars including Texas, Florida, California, and New York.  The comprehensive award honors the collective impact of programs sponsored by the YLC and it is a tremendous honor to receive Special Recognition, particularly when many programs were significantly altered this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Additionally, the YLC won the 2020 Award of Achievement for Service to the Public for the Immigrant Outreach Committee's Naturalization Clinic, which assists immigrants in Northern Virginia in becoming citizens of the United States.

“We are honored to once again be recognized on the national level for the hard work and commitment of YLC volunteers, program chairs, district representatives, and the Board of Governors,” said YLC President Missy York. 

The Young Lawyers Conference's more than 7,500 members include all Virginia attorneys who are under 36 years of age or who have been admitted as active, practicing members of their first bar for fewer than three years.
