broward county lawyers

The Young Lawyers Section (“YLS”) of the Broward County Bar Association strives to stimulate the interest of attorneys in the objectives of the Broward County Bar Association, and to promote professional and social understanding and cooperation among the Broward County legal community. The YLS contributes to the educational and professional advancement of attorneys, particularly those under age 36, while also contributing to the betterment of the Broward County community in general through charity functions and projects. The Young Lawyers Section has several annual events including Holiday in February, the Judicial Reception, and our largest event, a Golf Tournament each Fall. The YLS also hold monthly luncheons that highlight prominent business people and leaders in the Broward County community, and monthly board meetings to ensure our agenda is on point with our objectives. Our luncheons and events are open to all, not just YLS members. Please take a look at our Calendar of Events for more information.

To be eligible for membership in The YLS, an attorney must be under the age of 36 or in their first 5 years of practice as a Florida Bar member. Membership applications can be obtained through our drop down link entitled “Membership Information” or by contacting Patricia R. Hernandez, Membership Coordinator of the Broward County Bar Association at 954-764-8040 ext, 203 or membership@browardbar.org.

The Young Lawyers Section of the Broward County Bar Association was honored on Thursday, October 1, 2015 by the Legal Aid Service of Broward County and Coast to Coast Legal Aid of South Florida during their 14th Annual "For the Public Good" fundraiser. Celebrating the "Magic of Pro Bono Giving," honorees were recognized for their service to the under privileged and underserved of Broward County.

YLS received the Spirit of Justice Award for their commitment to Legal Aid. During the year of 2015, YLS challenged other voluntary bar associations in Broward County to pledge their membership to staff the Legal Aid Hotline for one whole month. The Hotline, which is offered during Tuesday afternoons, affords its clients with legal advice on a variety of areas; including family law, landlord/tenant disputes, and consumer issues. YLS will be extending the same challenge for the 2016 year.
