President's Welcome

I am excited and honored to be the Monroe County Bar Association's Young Lawyer Division President.  It is the mission of the YLD to organize the young lawyer members of the Monroe County Bar Association so that they may cooperate for the betterment of the legal profession. 

In spite of being in the midst of a global pandemic, we continued to provide YLD members with networking and educational programs focused on each member's professional development. We support community service initiatives which enable us to give back to the communities in which we live and work. Adapting to meeting virtually rather than in person was met head on in 2020 when we continued our Mentor Lunches and Legal Information Seminars.  Both were considered very successful with record attendance for our Legal Information Seminars. 

On behalf of the YLD Board of Directors, we look forward to the future.  We'll continue to host our regular programs and expand to include those that benefit the MCBA members and the Monroe County Bar Foundation.

Thank you to all the YLD members for their ongoing support.

Jessica Jones
2021 YLD President
