The Young Lawyers Division

The Young Lawyers Division of the Savannah Bar Association strives to enrich the lives
of its members, the Savannah Bar as a whole, and the greater Savannah community, by offering
numerous fellowship and community service opportunities throughout the year. The YLD’s
social calendar traditionally includes the annual Kick-Off Party in the fall to welcome new and
incoming attorneys, a yearly Christmas Party complete with a tacky sweater contest, and the
annual YLD Golf Tournament benefitting the Guardian ad Litem program. Additionally, the
YLD has monthly social events that vary from year to year, but have – in the past – included
Halloween costume parties, trivia nights, a historic district trolley tour, the Savannah Music
Festival, Oglethorpe Motor Speedway, and many happy hour events. Most importantly, the
Savannah YLD tries to tie community service and charitable fundraising to all of its social

While the YLD offers a full social calendar for its members, it is more than just a social
club. Mindful of its members’ talents and resources, and of the needs of many within the
Savannah area, the YLD gives back to the community by organizing fundraisers and contributing
to deserving causes. Funds raised during the YLD’s Annual Golf Tournament support the
Chatham County Guardian ad Litem program. The YLD brought in over $6,000 at the most
recent tournament. The amount has increased each year thanks to the generosity of those in the
community, as well as the hard work of those YLD members’ who make the tournament happen.

In recent years, the YLD has also raised funds each fall to support additional charitable
causes. In 2009, the YLD supported a local family who lost its home in a fire. In 2010, the
YLD contributed to the America’s Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia’s capital campaign for its
new Community Kitchen. Plans are already in place to select other deserving local charities as
beneficiaries of the YLD’s fundraising efforts in future years.

Members of the YLD also give their time to the local legal community by coordinating
or assisting with several key events, including the annual mass swearing-in for newly admitted
lawyers; the annual Savannah Regional Mock Trial Competition; and the annual ABA Law
Day activities (including coordination of presentations at local high schools and the Law Day
Luncheon and Awards Ceremony).
