Young Trial Lawyers Section


Any VTLA member under the age of 36 is automatically enrolled as a member of the Young Trial Lawyers Section. If you are looking to become more involved in association activities, we invite you to start by joining the YTL Section Leadership Committee. The leadership committee works together to bring programs, community service opportunities and social events to the young trial lawyer community. Take a look at VTLA's committees and see what strikes your fancy.

2021 Virtual Young Trial Lawyers Boot Camp Registration Open
Learn all the things you didn't learn in law school from some of Virginia's leading trial lawyers. We'll meet virtually four Wednesdays in a row from 4-5:30pm beginning on February 3. We'll discuss skills to practice wellness and avoid burnout, real life technology for your real life job, hands on tips for your and your practice, and learning how to succeed as a young lawyer during a pandemic. We will definitely miss being in-person for this year's boot camp, but on the plus side we won't be dealing with any traffic or weather delays! All four sessions are $99. Register Here.
