Don't miss our hashtags + a cool opportunity

The Young Lawyers Section launches our own Social Media Policy!

The CBA is on Instagram in addition to FB, Twitter and LinkedIn. In order to help all YL Branch sections across Canada share and keep track of posts, photos and stories, the YL Communications Committee came up with some hashtags young lawyers can use. While the Connecticut Bar Association’s young lawyers beat us to #cbayls for our general hashtag, we nabbed the same format for all Branch hashtags.

Let us know if you have suggestions for other event-specific hashtags! Also remember to keep our fellow Law Students Section members in the loop by tagging them at #cbalawstudents.

General Hashtag: #cbayounglawyers

On another note…

The Young Lawyers International Program (YLIP) is looking for candidates!


Looking for a change of scenery that puts you outside of your comfort zone? Passionate about law reform, human rights and access to justice issues? YLIP is looking for applicants for placements in Southern and East Africa, the Caribbean, Central and Southeast Asia, as well as Eastern Europe and the Balkans. YLIP creates 32 eight-month internships (6 months overseas, with program activities in Canada before and after the placement) each year for lawyers and recent law graduates under the age of 30. If you are looking to practice law a little differently, applications are due 30 April 2019.
