Young Lawyers Network Leadership Council

The DC Bar Foundation launched the Young Lawyers Network Leadership Council in November 2011 as an opportunity for younger attorneys to further the goal of access to justice within the community. Members serve as ambassadors in order to promote DCBF’s mission and programs and to help raise additional resources to support local legal aid organizations.

DCBF now seeks applications for new members of the YLN LC! Applications for two-year terms expiring September 30, 2020 are due by 5:00 p.m. on August 3, 2018. Download application materials here.
