Florida Bar Young Lawyers
The mission of the St. Thomas University Law Student Division of the Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division (“YLD”) is to assist the YLD in furthering the goals of The Florida Bar. The Law Student Division is designed to encourage interest in, and participation by, division members in the purposes of the YLD. The Law Student Division connects law students to YLD members, through a variety of activities and projects designed to be of interest and assistance to Division members, and engages in such activities that tend to further the best interests of the legal profession.
The STU Law Student Division, in conjunction with the YLD, coordinates activities for law students providing discussion and free interchange of ideas relative to the duties, responsibilities, and problems faced by members of the legal profession. The STU Law Student Division and YLD also offer mentoring opportunities, which provide professionalism training in order to enhance the integrity and reputation of the legal professional. The STU Law Student Division is encouraged to aid the YLD in serving the public, particularly those persons outside the legal profession, through state-wide and local community service projects and pro bono service.
