YLS’s mission is to enhance the professional growth and public service of new and recently admitted Missouri lawyers. All Missouri lawyers aged 36 or less or, if older, who have been in practice 5 years or less, are automatically members of YLS. Membership is at no additional cost to your regular MoBar dues.
As part of its mission, YLS sponsors, or helps sponsor, a variety of public service projects, CLEs, and social networking events across Missouri that are geared toward young and recently admitted lawyers.
We produce helpful publications for the public on a variety of legal issues and quarterly e-newsletter for young lawyers that is distributed to the e-mail address you have on file with the Missouri Bar.
We also help sponsor Missouri Bar and United States’ District Court enrollment activities and give awards to deserving lawyers and organizations who show excellence in a variety of ways.
We have a number of affiliate organizations that also have great opportunities to help you integrate in the profession and serve your communities.
