Young Lawyers Network Leadership Council Seeks Members

March 18, 2016

Are you a younger lawyer interested in helping the D.C. Bar Foundation further its goal of enhancing access to justice in the District of Columbia? The Foundation's Young Lawyers Network Leadership Council is seeking applicants who wish to serve as ambassadors to help promote the Foundation's mission and programs.

Applicants must be D.C. Bar members in good standing, under 40 years old at the start of their term, either live or work in the District, and commit to carrying out the responsibilities of the Young Lawyers Network.

The Bar Foundation will add several new Leadership Council members for a two-year term expiring on June 30, 2018. Applications are due by 5 p.m. on May 2.

Leadership Council members are appointed to Bar Foundation board committees and serve as liaisons to the organization's Board and Advisory Committee. Staff of LRAP-eligible employers, or of organizations eligible to receive funding from the Bar Foundation, are not eligible for membership in the Leadership Council.

The Bar Foundation is the leading private funder of civil legal services in the District, serving the city's poor and underserved residents. The Leadership Council was created in 2011 as an opportunity for younger lawyers to help the Foundation in its work to enhance access to justice.

Interested individuals should e-mail a completed application form, résumé, letter of interest, and up to two letters of support to David Stone, D.C. Bar Foundation development officer, at stone@dcbarfoundation.org. Please include "Young Lawyers Network Leadership Council, [Your Full Name]" in the subject line of the e-mail.
