About the HCBA New Lawyers Section

The New Lawyers Section focuses on the unique professional development needs of new lawyers, provides opportunities for social connection, and elevates the voices and perspectives of new lawyers and law students within the organization.

The MSBA New Lawyers Section is comprised of attorneys who were admitted to practice within the past six years or who are less than 36 years of age, as well as law students. No matter where you fit within our definition of a "new lawyer" the HCBA offers opportunities to learn, to lead, and to connect that fit with your needs and interests.

As a new lawyer, your experience, your insights, and your engagement are valued. We encourage you to tailor your involvement to what makes sense for you today, expecting that this will change over time as you move up in your career and you move through different life stages. Throughout your career, we are here to be YOUR bar association.
