Later this week, the Council for the ABA Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar will discuss a proposal from the ABA Young Lawyers Division to add two voting members to the council’s ranks. The YLD has asked the council to reserve two of the 21 council spots for young lawyers (under 36 or within 5 years of graduating law school).

The YLD proposal was spearheaded by Tom Hillers, the president of The Iowa State Bar Association Young Lawyers Division. You can read more about this effort in this article from Above the Law.
