YOUNG LAWYERS’ SECTION: RISE (Newer Lawyer Committee)

The “Younger Lawyers” Division of the National FBA is composed of all FBA members who are 36 years of age and under or those who have been admitted to practice for 3 years or less, and offers educational, social and informational activities that are of particular interest to its members. The Division represents more than one-third of the total membership of the National association.

In this Chapter, we prefer the term “Newer Lawyers” and the RISE Committee is open to all members who have practiced 5 years or less. The programming put on by the Committee focuses upon social networking.

“RISE” is not an acronym. It is a freestanding, unique name. Simple, easy-to-remember, and encapsulating many of our goals – leadership training, advancement in the FBA, and increasing the participation of younger attorneys in the FBA.
