Group Pages

Welcome to the Young Lawyers Division! 

The SCBA’s Young Lawyer’s Division (YLD) offers numerous opportunities to network and volunteer in the Sarasota community.  The mission of the YLD is to integrate young lawyers into the legal profession by stimulating their interest in bar association activities, social and educational programs, public service projects, and providing young lawyers with a voice in the state and local bar associations.


SCBA’s YLD has enjoyed tremendous success through its many programs and was recently selected the Affiliate of the Year at The Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division Affiliate Outreach Conference. We encourage you to join and get involved in a committee to meet and engage with the vibrant legal community in Sarasota County.


Membership in the Young Lawyers Division is open to all SCBA members who are under 36 years of age and all lawyers within their first three years of practice. Membership in the YLD is free and automatic upon membership in the SCBA.
