The Young Lawyers of the American Bar Association: Celebrating 75 Years of Excellence
tells the inspiring story of young lawyers and their impact on the community and the profession. From a handful of lawyers in the Great Depression to the largest young lawyer organization in the world, the book highlights, in both pictures and words, the journey that has brought the Young Lawyers Division where it is today.
The 128-page book articulates how the group was shaped around the traditions of public service and professional growth. It retraces the early days of increasing membership in the ABA, the promotion of the rule of law through the then new technology of radio, discusses the legal assistance program for Vietnam War refugees, recounts its pivotal role in increasing diversity within the ABA, and its development of future leaders of the ABA and the legal profession.
