The DC Bar Foundation launched the Young Lawyers Network Leadership Council in November 2011, as an opportunity for younger lawyers to further the goal of access to justice within the community. Members serve as ambassadors in order to promote DCBF’s mission and programs and to help raise additional resources to support local legal aid organizations.
