New Lawyers Council

The New Lawyers Council is an initiative designed to increase committee opportunities for our members who have been practicing for less than ten years. The New Lawyers Council will be made up of four committees, each with room for 39 members and a chair. They are: the Public Service Committee, the Social Events and Networking Committee, the New Lawyer Practice and Skills Committee and the National Moot Court Competition Committee.

The Public Service Committee will develop new programs to provide service to the public. Activities will likely include community education on legal issues as well as non-legal activities such as clothing drives or other public-spirited projects.

The Social Events and Networking Committee will develop networking opportunities and social events for newer lawyers in the City Bar. The Committee will work closely with the City Bar Membership Department, which produces "Lawyers Connect First Thursdays" and other events to appeal to newer lawyers.

The New Lawyer Practice and Skills Committee will focus on professional development materials and programming tailored to junior associates and their in-house and nonprofit counterparts. The committee will also help develop mentoring programs.

The National Moot Court Competition Committee will manage and administer the highly-regarded annual National Moot Court Competition.
