Young Lawyers Section
Share |

The Arlington County Bar Association's Young Lawyers Section is dedicated to the development of our young and newly-admitted attorneys, to promoting collegiality among Bar members, and to supporting our local community. The Section strives to provide resources to help its members establish themselves in the legal community through practical skills training, networking, and mentorship. Section members will have opportunities to build relationships with other young lawyers, as well as with experienced attorneys and judges as they become acclimated to the practice of law in Arlington County. 

The Section hosts monthly social events, at which young and new lawyers meet other local attorneys, learn about the Arlington County Bar Association, and make connections throughout the community. The Section also hosts events throughout the year during which members can interact with the judiciary, engage in continuing legal education, and participate in community service.

Young Lawyer Section membership is automatic for any active attorney member in good standing with the Arlington Bar Association who is under forty (40) years of age or, regardless of age, have been admitted to their first bar association less than five (5) years.

Events

Breakfast with the Judges: Breakfast with the Judges provides young and new attorneys the opportunity to mingle with judges in an informal, yet professional setting. The event objective is to encourage interaction between young lawyers and the judges before whom they appear and to support the professional development of our young legal community.

Court Tour Program: The Arlington County Court Tour Program was designed to enhance the curriculum educating students about the civil and criminal judicial system. Arlington County students will have the opportunity to participate in a mock trial, and engage with judges, attorneys, and court staff. Depending on the Court’s schedule, they may also have the chance to observe real-life court proceedings. Our goal is for participating students to gain a better respect for and understanding of the judicial branch of government, and the process by which a case comes to trial and a decision is rendered.

Wills For Heroes Program: The Wills for Heroes Program was created to allow the legal community to show its appreciation for the efforts and sacrifices made by firefighters, police, sheriffs, and emergency medical technicians (“first responders”). The Arlington County WFH program will permit eligible first responders and their spouses to receive a basic will, advanced medical directive, and/or power of attorney.

Annual Brewery Tour: The Wills for Heroes Program was created to allow the legal community to show its appreciation for the efforts and sacrifices made by firefighters, police, sheriffs, and emergency medical technicians (“first responders”). The Arlington County WFH program will permit eligible first responders and their spouses to receive a basic will, advanced medical directive, and/or power of attorney.
