Young Lawyers

Addressing the needs of young lawyers

Welcome to the Young Lawyers’ Corner! The goal of the Magnolia Bar’s Young Lawyers’ Committee (“YLC”) is to address the needs of young lawyers in the Magnolia Bar Association. The YLC gives young lawyers the opportunity to network and share in their common experiences of being young lawyers.


Whether the young lawyer is a solo practitioner, an associate in a big or small firm, a civil litigator, civil rights attorney, criminal defense lawyer, a transactional attorney, or a governmental lawyer, we are here as a resource. In addition, the YLC provides assistance for those who are transitioning from law school to the practice of law, as well as, current law students. Overall, the YLC is a good place for a young lawyer to begin his or her leadership within the Magnolia Bar Association and the legal community.


The YLC’s speaker luncheons are held bimonthly on the first Friday of the month. This year our speakers will cover topics such as: 

  • “The Do’s and the Don’ts of the Chancery and Circuit Courts” 
  • “How to Conduct a Deposition”
  • “How to Conduct a Trial”
  • “Financial Advice”


The YLC participates in the Magnolia Bar Foundation events and community service projects including Mock Trial, Toys for Children and Thanksgiving Dinner giveaway to persons in need. In addition, the YLC coordinates several activities with the younger lawyer in mind. We have a variety of social activities which include happy hours and social gatherings.
