Rise (Newer Lawyer Section)

The New Lawyers  Committee is open to all chapter members who have been admitted to practice for 5 years or less.  The committee works to offer educational, social, informational and community-minded activities that are of particular interest to its members.

“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.
