Will County Bar Association Young Lawyers Committee

About The Young Lawers Committee

Welcome, young lawyers of Will County, to the Will County Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division (YLD)! It is the objective of the YLD to engage local lawyers recently admitted to the bar with both the legal community and community-at large throughout Will County. Each year the YLD hosts a number of events that include both social outings (i.e., baseball games and speaking events) as well as community service projects (i.e., assisting organizations like the Northern Illinois Food Bank Habitat for Humanity with local projects). It is the YLD’s hope that these events will offer young lawyers the opportunity to grow both professionally and personally by becoming more immersed in the community in which they work.

YLD events are open to both recently-admitted, practicing attorneys as well as aspiring attorneys. To find out more about upcoming events, please contact the WCBA Administrator at info@willcountybar.org or the Co-Chairs of the YLD Lorien Schoenstedt and Jonathan Powell.

Get Involved!

The WCBA maintains a number of committees that provide useful services such as CLE seminars, rule proposals, participation in the judicial poll and this website.

Members of the Will County Bar are urged to join a committee as participation from all committees and their members are very important to the growth of our association and other WCBA members.
