Sections keep Association members abreast of developments in substantive areas of law. The Young Lawyers Division includes all members who are under 37 years of age or who were admitted to the Bar of any state no more than three years ago. Membership in the Young Lawyers Division is free and the Division’s activities are funded by the Association and sponsorships that the Division solicits. The Division has 20 committees and an Executive Committee which includes 7 members who are elected each year for three-year terms, and a young lawyer liaison from each Section, Committee, and certain affinity bar association.

Financial statements are distributed to Section Leadership on a monthly basis.  If there are questions regarding a Section’s financial statement, please contact Susan Knight at or at (215) 238-6325.
