Welcome to the home of the Young Lawyers Section of the West Virginia State Bar.
This forum exists to assist new lawyers in making the transition between law school and the practice of law. All members in good standing with the Bar who have been sworn to practice before the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals and who are 35 years of age or under, or members admitted to practice ten years or less prior to the State Bar's annual meeting, are automatically members of the YLS.
Our goal is to provide a means for personal and professional growth for young lawyers by encouraging participation in the activities of the Bar. The YLS seeks to accomplish it's goal through implementing programs that promote education, leadership and public service. In addition to providing such opportunities for young lawyers, the YLS assists the Bar in it's mission to improve the administration of justice and increase the legal services provided to the citizens of West Virginia.
