Need Guidance? Check out Lawyers Advising Lawyers!

Through its partnership with the Young Lawyers Division, The Florida Bar has launched a new website, Lawyers Advising Lawyers, featuring a peer-to-peer program giving members across the state access to veteran attorneys who can help answer procedural and substantive legal questions across more than 50 practice areas. Lawyers Advising Lawyers gives experienced attorneys a platform to assist lawyers with issues they have previously dealt with during their career. The program uses technology to provide immediate interaction by phone or email with other lawyers working in different parts of the state. Participating advisors will receive one CLE credit per consultation for a total of five CLE credits per year.

Get involved with your YLS by joining a new committee

As YLS president I am honored and excited to announce the YLS has formed three new committees with the purpose of better serving our members and our community at large. The new committees are the Diversity & Inclusion Committee, the Youth Projects Committee, and the Member Services Committee. A short description of each committee is provided below:

Diversity & Inclusion – the purpose of this committee is to increase diversity and inclusion in our membership by developing opportunities and leadership roles in our profession for all attorneys, including those who are racially, ethnically and culturally diverse, women, and members of the LGBT community, and persons with disabilities.

Youth Projects Committee  - the purpose of this committee is to plan, coordinate, and oversee all youth-related activities with a goal to increase engagement by the YLS with the youth in our community.

Member Services Committee – the purpose of this committee is to plan, coordinate, and oversee programs to promote YLS membership engagement and delivering services to existing YLS members.       

We are actively seeking YLS members to help fill these new committees. If you are interested in joining one or more of these committees please contact me by email at

Thank you for your service,

Stephen Lewellyn

YLS President
