The Young Lawyers Division is now accepting nominations from any voting member of the YLD interested in serving a three-year term on the Executive Committee. This year's YLD Executive Committee election will take place on Tuesday, Dec. 4.

For those wishing to learn more about the YLD and the election process, an information session will be held on Monday, Sept. 24 at 12:30 pm in the 11th Floor Conference Center of the Philadelphia Bar Association, 1101 Market St.

Each year, seven new members are elected to the YLD Executive Committee.
