The Florida Bar YLD Legal Accelerator


Over the past several years, the YLD has focused its efforts on providing resources to help new attorneys operate in today’s legal marketplace.  In doing so, the YLD has created substantial content for its members including how-to videos, webinars, basic CLEs, blog posts, and more. The Legal Accelerator aggregates all of this previously existing content into one location. In addition to the existing content, the YLD has filmed approximately 1,000 mentoring videos covering approximately 500 topic areas.  These videos, which continue to be created, have been filmed by over 100 experienced Florida practitioners, including Judges. Click Here to learn more!  Link - https://flayld.org/about-us/newsletter/yld-unveils-newest-member-benefit-legal-accelerator-website/
