Committee Leadership Details


Young Lawyers Council (YLC)


Committee Description

Charter: The YLC is open to attorneys who have been practicing 8 years or less. The purpose of the YLC is two-fold. First, the members of the YLC seek to educate themselves and others in the practice of energy law. Toward this end, the YLC will call upon the knowledge and experience of seasoned practitioners, FERC and other government officials, and young lawyers themselves. The YLC will also sponsor a variety of programs aimed at educating law students as to the opportunities and rewards of careers in energy law. Second, the YLC seeks to encourage cordial relationships among newer energy law practitioners such that YLC members may begin to develop the lasting relationships which promote the mutual trust and professionalism important to effective representation. In these ways, the YLC will help newer lawyers mature into the experienced practitioners who are the future of the bar and of the Association.
