Younger Lawyers Division

Interested in joining the Younger Lawyers Division?

The Capitol Hill Chapter's events provide a unique opportunity for young lawyers to meet and query leaders in the federal legal system and legislative community.

The Younger Lawyers Division of the Federal Bar Association was founded to stimulate the interest of younger lawyers in the activities of the Federal Bar Association and to conduct programs of interest to younger lawyers. Members must be less than thirty-seven years of age or be individuals who have been admitted to their first bar for less than three years.

The Younger Lawyers Division represents more than one third of the total Federal Bar Association membership. The Young Lawyers Division was established in 1960 as a committee and designated as a council in 1967. In recognition of the group's growing importance and unique status within the association, the division was created in 1978. The division's purpose is to provide services and information of particular interest to the younger members of the federal legal profession. The Young Lawyers Division hosts annual events such as a moot court competition, Supreme Court admission ceremony, Bill of Rights Program, the awarding of Shaw grants, and many other programs.

Membership in the Capitol Hill Chapter is open to any regular member in good standing of the Federal Bar Association (FBA). Law students may become affiliated with the Chapter through FBA law student membership.

For more information please contact Chapter Secretary Amy Bowser or Council Member Jeff McDermott who serve as liaisons to interested law students and to the Younger Lawyers Division of the Federal Bar Association.
